A superb guide to the history and architecture of Gwent (Monmouthshire of old). Not produced as a tourist guide but for those requiring more than a day visitor type guide this would be a superb addition to your bookshelf. Many b&w photos and line drawings illustrate the contents.
if you want to know the history of the buildings of Monmouthshire, this volume is the most comprehensive. It goes much further than Fox and Raglan and is more extensive than Bradney. The ideal companion to the architecture of Gwent.
From the outset the book leads you through a historical walk relating thoroughly what building materials and techniques were available in Gwent/Monmouthshire both in the past and present. A must for anyone renovating a peroid house which uses Monmouthshire materials.
