Directions to Start
Allow 1 hour from CRiC. From the front of CRiC take A40 towards Abergavenny and turn immediately left after the Fire Station up Greenhill Way. Then right at mini-roundabout. Follow the road for 3½ miles until, on a right bend, you come to a sign for Llanthony along a very narrow lane. Turn left here (effectively straight on!) and continue, following the signs.

At next T junction turn left and follow road for 5 miles to turning right, signposted to Llanthony Priory. Park in public car park.
