Caerwent Historic Trust Open Day

We are fast approaching the Trust Open Day on Saturday 4th May from 10.00am – 1.00pm. at Caerwent Church. We hope you will be able to come along and perhaps find out more about the history of the community you live in

We are very lucky to have two speakers at the event

At 11am, Dr Mark Lewis, Senior Curator: Roman Archaeology at the National Roman Legion Museum, Caerleon will give a talk on the village layout and some interesting landmarks you might not have been aware of; and

At 12 noon, Mr Peter Bonvoison will speak on “House histories: Court House, Llanvair Discoed”

We will be answering enquiries on local history, displaying the layout of the church graveyard plots and assisting with family history. We will also be displaying local maps of the area including tithe maps showing the ownership of local land back to 1841.

Refreshment will be available in the church

We are also looking for residents who can help us create a living archive of their memories of the area. Modern technologies allow us to not only create written records of the past but to now have audio and video records spoken by the individuals themselves. This is an exciting project the Trust has started and we would welcome as many local people with a story to tell to either come along on the day or to contact us so we can capture these memories.

Any stories or anecdotes would be of interest so please get in touch

Please contact either Rob Jones (Chairman) or Kevin Evans (Secretary) at the following email address.

Caerwent Historic Trust

World War 1 Commemoration Page

As part of the World War 1 Rememberance process the Historic Trust have decided to set up a timeline of the fallen for the period 1914-1918.

The timeline will post on or near to the date of a particular loss with brief details of the fallen.

The information will build up over the next 3 years to show all those from the Caerwent area who gallantly gave the ultimate sacrifice.

Please vist our Commemoration page

This information was originally colated by the late John Nettleship and Gareth Jones.

More recently it was used in the Commemoration Service at Caerwent Church on 9th November 2014.
