Griff Rhys Jones visited Aberystwyth as part of his Great Welsh Adventure series. This was shown on ITV in February last year, a few months before the Nanteos Cup was stolen.

from "The White House - notes by Miss Purser" CLICK HERE for link.
Until recently, what remains of that blackened olive wood up has been kept at
Nantoes - now many seek in vain; may it soon be restored to the only rightful place for its
keeping, Glastonbury Abbey, from whence it came.
An interesting statement - especially in light of recent events! :lol:

However, there is no reason to suppose that the Nanteos Cup ever came from Glastonbury.

from In Search of the Holy Grail and the Precious Blood: A Travellers' Guide by Deike Begg, page 6:
"... but there is currently a move afoot to have the Nanteos Cup returned to Glastonbury..."
Also an interesting statement. What kind of "move" I wonder? By whom?
