Penallt Village Website


Welcome to the site

Penallt (also spelled 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 (map showing boundary) boasts some 250 houses (maps showing houses), a pub or two and a fine village hall (Pelham Hall) with its tennis and cricket clubs.

This website, amongst other things, aims to provide information about the village, its history and its community and to act as a notice board for the wide variety of events held within its boundary. Details of how to use the website may be found here
