St MADRON

Christian Saint

Also known as MADERN, MEDRON

Patron Saint of Cures from and Protection against Pain

Cornish Saint with a village and a Holy Well bearing his name.

The well is recommended for the cure of chest complaints, nightmares and rickets if certain rituals are followed. These seem to be more Pagan than Christian.

Still, with hospital waiting lists getting longer in Britain it could be worth a try. One tried and tested tip is to leave a small piece of fabric from your clothing at St Madron’s Well; your illness will dwindle away as the cloth deteriorates.

Of course there is no guarantee if you choose to wear man-made fabrics, and nylon is a definite no-no.

Apart from its fascinating wells, Cornwall is also well known for breathtaking coastal scenery, tin mines, cream teas and delicious pasties. Why not choose Cornwall for your vacation this year?
