One of our most important activities is the Research Group which has found out so much about the area over many years.
It also enabled another website for the information in the Abergavenny Street Survey.
Many Books and leaflets have followed, as well as journal articles to make the information public.
Abergavenny Local History Society membership is open to all and costs £15 per person per year. Renew membership from 1st September.
