Excellent News about Gunter House!

The Welsh Georgan Trust has been awarded grants, from NHMF and the PIlgrim Trust, of the £150,000 that it needs for the purchase of Gunter House.


ALHS has recently launched its new website

where you can find fascinating historic

information about the individual properties

in Abergavenny town centre.

  You can visit the new website here -


  • Visits

    Caerleon excavations visit

    From May or June onwards, we visit places of historical interest, with day, evening and weekend excursions.
    How to book? A list is sent out to members by email (or post) in the January. Book as soon as you can as places are now being allocated on a 'first come' basis, although there are sometimes cancellations later. You need to be a member to go on visits but if it is after the end of January you can join for the half year for only £5.

  • Walks

    During the longer daylight days, we organise walks around interesting areas of Abergavenny for members and for the public.
    How to book?
    Booking is not usually necessary but details are given on the walks page of this website, the press and on posters.
    We also arrange guided tours for groups.
