Directions to Start
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 first T junction turn right and at “major” intersection (five ways) take second exit (signposted Llanthony). At next t junction turn left. The Queen’s Head pub is on your right after 300 yards and the car park just after it on the left. To obtain directions from another location, click on the map below, then click on Directions and add your starting location.
