A man from Australia has anonymously returned a stone which he stole from a ruined abbey, claiming the stone was haunted and giving him bad luck.
He took the stone from the ruins of Cwmhir Abbey, located near Llandrindod Wells in Wales.
The site was founded by Welsh prince Cadwallon ap Madog in 1176, who was murdered in the Abbey in 1179.
There have been numerous reports of hauntings at the ancient site ever since.
The small stone was sent back from Australia, with a short note that claimed the man was being haunted by the headless ghost of the Welsh prince.
”I am so sorry for taking, borrowing, stealing this piece of the old Abbeycwmhir. I have been an avid follower of the Welsh Kings and their history and so I took this rock,” the man said in his letter.
“Ever since I have had the most awful luck as if [the prince] himself was angry with me. So I am sending it back. I will not leave my name or address, just a heartfelt sorry from an Australian fan,” he continued.
The stone has now been put on display alongside the note, as a warning to would-be pilferers.
