Directions from North, South and East:
As you approach Abergavenny you will come to a large roundabout (The Hardwick Roundabout), where the A40 (from Raglan and Monmouth), A465 (from Hereford) and A4042 (from Cwmbran and Newport) meet. Follow the signs for Merthyr Tydfil, onto the A465 (Heads of the Valley Road). Take the first exit (A4143/B4246) signposted Blaenavon and Abergavenny. At the roundabout at the end of the slip road take the first exit (signposted Blaenavon), and follow this road (the B4246) straight over a mini-roundabout and through Llanfoist. Continue on this road into Govilon (about one and a half miles). Once in Govilon take the SECOND LEFT, this is Station Road (there is a brown Tourist Board sign to Llanwenarth Chapel). About 200yds up the hill, on the left, is the entrance to the walled chapel grounds, with space for about fifteen cars to park at the rear of the chapel building.

 

 

Please note - if you get lost in the area of Abergavenny, ask for directions to GOVILON and not Llanwenarth - they will send you to the wrong side of the river to the old Anglican church at Llanwenarth Citra! We are in the other half of the old parish - known as Llanwenarth Ultra.

Directions from West:
Travel down the A465 (Heads of the Valley Road) from Brynmawr. At the end of the Clydach Gorge you will come to the Gilwern Roundabout. Take the fourth exit off the roundabout, to GOFILON (spelt the Welsh way on the signpost). Follow the road through Govilon, past the Old Post Office (on the right) and past the Village Shop (on the left) and take the next turn you see on the RIGHT (signposted with a brown Tourist Board sign to the chapel) - this is actually the fourth right turn since entering the village). About 200yds up the hill, on the left is the entrance to the walled chapel grounds, with space for about fifteen cars to park at the rear of the chapel building.
