A strenuous, invigorating and rewarding circular walk around the lower Llanthony valley, rich in history and with spectacular views of the Black Mountains.  We visit the Cwmyoy crooked church, the magical Llanthony Priory, hear the revenge stone story and visit an Iron Age/ Roman fort

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.
