I have seen many sites showing Is Abergavenny in Herefordshire, yet some show it is in Monmouthshire.
It should be simple, it can’t be in both, can it ?
Abergavenny is in Wales.
Monmouthshire is in Wales.
Herefordshire is in England.
So what is the problem , what is the confusion ?
Hereford is apparently 16 miles from the England/Wales border, in England.
Abergavenny is located 6 miles from the England/Wales border, in Wales.
In 1189 the King of England, Richard I described Hereford as “Hereford in Wales”
Ahh !! Maybe some “Hereford” people have long memories, and now live in Abergavenny, and think of it as English ?
That may be stretching it though.. 🙂
Well, I don’t have a reasonable answer after all… Yet !
