Towns & Parishes
"GROSMONT, a parish in the hundred of Skenfreth, county Monmouth, 9 miles N.E. of Abergavenny, and 10 N.W. of Monmouth. It is, situated in the N.E. part of the county, close upon the borders of Herefordshire, at the foot of Graig Hill. The river Monnow flows through the parish. Grosmont was formerly a market and corporate town, governed by a mayor and other municipal officers; but for many years the market has declined, and the above offices only exist in name. Numerous remains of stone causeways intersect the adjoining meadows, supposed to indicate the site of former streets."
