Grosmont Town Information




Use the links on the left to find information and images for the towns and villages throughout Cardiff and South East Wales...








A fascinating old town sitting on a hill, Grosmont is noted for the quality of its fishing in the River Monnow and for the remains of its ruined Norman castle, the most northern of three built to guard against Welsh raiders. Owen Glendower and Llewellyn the Great both failed to take it.

The ruins of Skenfrith Castle and White Castle are close by. The local church dates to the 13th century and is associated with John Kent, reputed to have been a magician who lived to 120.
