Croeso / Welcome to this lovely small village on the border of England and Wales. There is much to see and do here; lovely scenery and walking country and warm hospitality in local inns. We invite you to come and stay awhile.
The lovely church of St. Bridget’s, which celebrated its 800th anniversary in 2007, stands alongside the ruins of Skenfrith Castle (Cadw) founded in the 1100s. A mill stands at the entrance to the village alongside an impressive War Memorial, raised by public subscription in 1920 to commemorate men from the village who served in the 1914-18 war. A large open space borders the river, which is spanned by a stone bridge built over the River Monnow in 1824 with the white painted Bell inn alongside, both relics of coaching days.
This is Welsh border country, around 12 miles south of the old county town of Hereford and around 8 miles north of the historic town of Monmouth. The market town of Abergavenny is about 14 miles to the east. There are many walks to explore the hills and countryside, camping and caravan sites and the historic castles of Grosmont and White Castle nearby.
Social events take place in the Parish Hall, church services take place weekly in St. Bridget's Church (Church in Wales) and at Norton Baptist Church.
