The Village Websmith - Web Design & Services for Penallt,, Forest of Dean, Gloucestershire

Penallt is a village in Monmouthshire, Wales. In the centre of the village, by the village green, is the seventeenth century village pub, the Bush Inn.

Nearby, the Penallt Old Church Wood is a ten acre nature reserve managed by the Gwent Wildlife Trust. This deciduous woodland forms a habitat for Pied Flycatchers, Nuthatch, Tree Pipits, Treecreepers and Sparrowhawks, as well as plants such as Wild Daffodils and Moschatel.

The Old Church is about a mile north of the village, and is mostly late mediaeval. The door bears the date 1539. The Church dedication is unknown, though there is a local tradition that it was St James, the patron saint of pilgrims.

The Argoed, a seventeenth-century mansion, lies to the south east of the village. It was once owned by the father of Beatrice Webb, the British socialist, economist and reformer.

The Wild Daffodil occurs in several places in Monmouthshire, such as Springdale Farm and Penallt Old Church Wood. However the greatest spectacle is provided by the slope below Margaret's Wood reserve, on the way to Whitebrook, where a carpet of thousands of flowers provides a wonderful display at the end of March and beginning of April.

Officially promoting Monmouthshire

Being lucky enough to live and work in one of the most beautiful places you can imagine is a privilege that few can aspire to. As I never tire of telling people, this is a great place to visit, whatever your interests.

Now, having completed the Monmouthshire Ambassadors training course, I can officially tell people that this is a great place to visit. More than that, I have access to all the information you could need about places to see and things to do in the surrounding area. Visitors to Tintern are more than welcome to pop into my office for a chat, directions or details of local attractions. The kettle is very often on around here and you can be sure of a warm welcome.

Here I am after the training course with other delegates, pictured outside the venue, Caldicot Castle.

I have also been elected to the board of the Wye Valley and Forest of Dean Tourism Association, so get a chance to feed information from local businesses into the promotional and marketing mix. Please feel free to drop in if you are involved in tourism activities locally and tell me what you want the world to know. I will do my level best to represent local interests in the Association and its publications.
