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

Shirenewton is a small village, lying 5 miles (8 km) out of the town of Chepstow, Monmouthshire, UK. The village stands around 500 feet (154 m) above sea level, and has views of the Severn Estuary and the Bristol Channel.</p><p>Shirenewton is a small village in MonmouthshireThe name Shirenewton has had several variations over the years, such as Sheref Newton, Neweton, Nether Went, and Nova Villa. The present name derives from the creation of the village in a forest clearing by the Sheriff of Gloucester, Walter Fitzherbert, around AD 1100. It means "Sheriff's New Tun". Tun is the old word for a homestead. There has recently been some controversy over the Welsh name for the village, but this has been confirmed by the Place Names Standardisation Committee of the Welsh Language Board to be Drenewydd Gelli-farch, which is normally translated to "new settlement at the stallion's grove".</p><p>The 1892 Chepstow Directory has an entry for Shirenewton, showing that it had a population of around 650 people. The current population is unknown, but the number of houses in the village has increased markedly in recent years. Many attempts have been made to extend the village, to add small housing estates, but most have come up short due to the village boundaries, and the desire of the locals to keep the village as it is.</p><p>Shirenewton, although relatively small, has a collection of four Pubs.

Special Occasions? Never Forget Another One!

At the request of one of our florist customers, this function was added recently and should prove popular with restaurants, hairdressers, clubs and anyone in the gift or entertainment markets.<br /><br />Using a simple form, visitors can set up their memorable dates, with the name, relationship and occasion they need to celebrate. Each week, the site owner gets a list of forthcoming anniversaries, birthdays and other regular party dates for the month or week in prospect (you get to choose the lead time). Then, to add the personal touch, you can call, email or send a card to all the people who should be remembering something so that they can a) remember, and b) make sure they buy their celebrations from you.
