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.


Research is also the basis for the Walks around the historic town with its many Plaques.
