Gwent - Monmouth
Monmouth is a traditional county town in Monmouthshire, Wales.
It is situated where the River Monnow meets the River Wye, within 2
miles (3.2 km) of the border with England. The town is 36 miles (58
km) north-east of Cardiff, and 127 miles (204 km) west of London. It
is within the Monmouthshire local authority, and the parliamentary
constituency of Monmouth. According to the 2001 census, its
population was 8,877.
The town was the site of a small Roman fort, Blestium, and became
established after the Normans built a castle here after 1067. Its
mediaeval stone gated bridge is the only one of its type remaining
in Britain. The castle later came into the possession of the House
of Lancaster, and was the birthplace of King Henry V in 1387. In
1536, it became the county town of Monmouthshire. Monmouth later
became a tourist centre at the heart of the Wye Valley, as well as a
market town. It now acts as a shopping and service centre, and as a
focus of educational and cultural activities, for its surrounding
rural area, and is linked by the A40 road to the M4 motorway at
Newport and the M50 at Ross-on-Wye.
