Gwent/Monmouthshire provides an authoritative and enlightening survey of the area from prehistoric times to the present day. Major buildings include the magnificent medieval castles of Chepstow and Raglan, the evocative ruins of Tintern Abbey and Llanthony Priory and among the larger houses Tredegar House and The Hendre take pride of place. The legacy of Victorian industrial development and the heritage of chapels, churches, workmen's institutes and housing development are explored in this book, much of it for the first time. The significant contribution of post war architecture in Gwent/Monmouthsire is given full recognition. The gazetteer is complemented by an introduction which explains the broader context and builds a commplete picture of the county's architectural identity. Illustrated with over 140 photographs and numerous maps and plans, and with comprehensive indexes and an illustrated glossary, this is an invaluable reference work as well as a guide book.
