What do we do? Click on the menu ...



Although we cannot hold lectures or go on visits at the moment we are making plans for when we can do so. The article on the This Month page (see menu on the left) and the August edition of the Abergavenny Focus is about the Blaenavon Iron Works.

The revised edition of Discovering Abergavenny: Archaeology and History by Frank Olding is now available! See the Books and Leaflets page for how to get your copy.

The Annual Reports for 2019 are now available on the Annual Reports and ALHS Accounts pages - please see the menu on the left.

Abergavenny Museum is closed but the Castle grounds are looking beautiful and are open to pedestrians, but not every day - check Monmouthshire Museums social media before you travel.

  • 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.

  • Visits

      Caerleon visit 2019

    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 book for and to go on visits, so you will need to renew your membership before your visit.
