Synopsis

Along with its rich history and spectacular scenery, the county of Monmouthshire is home to a great many curious and unusual buildings, objects and landscape features that have survived the centuries.



Mike Hall condenses the area's long and fascinating history into a collection of memorable `curiosities' that are still to be seen today. Visitors - and even residents - frequently walk by some of these age-old fragments of the past without fully realising just what they are, or how they relate to Monmouthshire's past. This well-illustrated book is a guide to 100 of these remarkable sights, including the largest lump of coal in the world, the church which still bears the marks of the great tsunami flood of 1607, and the grave of a Rorke's Drift VC winner.



Monmouthshire Curiosities will encourage readers to explore the remoter parts of the Welsh Borders and perhaps make their own curious discoveries.
