St Leonard’s near Horsham in Sussex has the last known sighting of a dragon in England in 1614.
Some time earlier St Len fought a dragon in this forest and was wounded. Wherever drops of his blood fell, lilies of the valley grew. A section of the forest is still called the Lilly Beds.
But perhaps he didn’t confront the dragon as he may have been in France at the time, where he is said to have founded a monastery near Limoges.
His specialty in these parts was visiting prisoners, and any he spoke to were released by the King, making our Saint the Patron of Prisoners.
He is also attributed with being a hermit. Maybe he did all three, popping over to England for some serious hermitry and dragon-hunting in the forest, and back to France when the jails were becoming overcrowded.
