The Local Area – Around Penallt
Penallt (also spelt Penalt) is a village standing on the high ground south of Monmouth, above the west bank of the River Wye in the Wye Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The name can be translated from the Welsh as head or top of the (wooded) hill and, even though much of the land is now agricultural, this still seems appropriate when looking up from the river.
The village boasts some 200 houses, two pubs – Inn at Penallt and The Boat Penallt plus a fine village hall (Pelham Hall) with its tennis and cricket clubs. The Local catchment primary school is Trellech Primary School and Highschool options include Monmouth Comprehensive, Monmouth Boys School and Monmouth School for Girls.
Nearby, the Penallt Old Church Wood is a 10-acre (40,000 m2) nature reserve managed by the Gwent Wildlife Trust. This deciduous woodland forms a habitat for pied flycatchers, nuthatches, tree pipits, treecreepers and sparrowhawks, as well as plants such as wild daffodils and moschatel.
Penallt Old Church is about a mile north of the village. The main part of the building dates from the 15th or early 16th century, while the lower part of the tower may date from the 14th century. The heavy oak door bears the date 1532. The church was restored in 1887. The churchyard cross has a base and lower shaft of 15th-century date. The church dedication is unknown, though there is a local tradition that it was St James, the patron saint of pilgrims. Inside is the royal coat of arms of Queen Anne dating from 1709.
The Argoed, a 17th-century mansion, lies to the south-east of the village. It was once owned by the father of Beatrice Webb, the British socialist, economist and reformer. Robert Plant also owned it in the 1980s. George Bernard Shaw stayed with the Webb family and described Penallt as a “special place” Other residents of the village include Jeremy Cook, the BBC’s rural affairs correspondent, and Television presenter Kate Humble. Walter Keeler is a renowned potter specialising in salt glaze pottery.
