Abergavenny grew up around the Norman castle, on the site of a Roman fort. The town also has an ancient market that prospered, and it was known for its Welsh flannel. The town continued to expand in the nineteenth century with the coming of the railway and the iron and coal industries of Gwent. Today this historic town is the ‘Gate to Wales’, known for its proximity to the rural beauty of the Black Mountains and the Brecon Beacons National Park. Abergavenny History Touris a unique insight into the illustrious history of this Monmouthshire market town. Join local author Irena Morgan as she guides us around the streets, alleyways, parks and buildings, showing its famous landmarks and exploring its lesser-known sights and hidden corners. With the help of a handy location map, readers are invited to follow a timeline of events and discover for themselves the attractions of Abergavenny.
