Wales: Historic village gets extra protection

A historic Monmouthshire village’s character will be preserved for future generations, after being designated a conservation area.

The decision by Monmouthshire council means any plans submitted to the local authority regarding Trellech, near Monmouth, must preserve or enhance the character of the village.

Trellech is of archaeological and historical importance as a medieval town, which was confirmed in 2004.

The main archaeological sites include Trellech Churchyard Cross and base, The Virtuous Well, St Nicholas’ Church and Trellech Sunken Medieval Village.
