Llangwm (Monmouthshire) Local History Group

The Llangwm Local History Group was formed in August 1998 with two main objectives: 
  1. To facilitate talks, presentations and visits on local and county history
  2. To engage in research on the local history of the area
You can join the group for a whole season or choose to go to individual meetings for a small charge to cover costs. Meetings are held once a month in the six Winter months of the year and cover a wide variety of topics.
The meetings normally take place in the evening, in Llangwm village hall. The postcode for the car park is NP15 1HQ.

Llangwm Local History Group Trips

In 2003, with the assistance of a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund, a small project group started to establish a local history resource centre. This is already being used to discover the history of the local area through the use of the 1841 to 1901 censuses and old property deeds.

If you would like to take part then further details are available from:
