Saint Winifred was from a wealthy Welsh family. Legend has it that she was beheaded by a rejected suitor, Prince Caradog. Winifred’s uncle, Saint Beuno, miraculously restored her head and life. A spring sprung up where her head fell called Holywell or St. Winifred’s Well (the Lourdes of Wales) where pilgrims travel to and many miracles take place. Winifred later became a nun and Abbess at Gwytherin in Wales.
