Angelystor near St Asaph
Folklore says villagers in Llangernyw, midway between Abergele and Llanrwst, learn their grim fate from a supernatural being under the boughs of a 3,000-year-old yew tree.
Each year on Halloween and July 31 the Angelystor is said to appear in the medieval church of Llangernyw in Conwy.
On those dates, it solemnly announces, in Welsh, the names of those parish members who will die shortly after.
The churchyard contains the oldest living thing in Wales - a yew tree which botanists believe to be over 3,000 years old.
