FEATURED PHOTO:

There is a very beautiful image in a panel of a stained glass window on the south side of St Mary’s Priory Church in Monmow,  which was part of a memorial window to those who died and to those who took part in the Boer Wars 1899-1902. It depicts the crowned king Henry V in full armour wearing an ermine-lined cope and holding the banner of England with the Monmow Bridge behind.  The bridge is the only remaining mediaeval fortified river-bridge in Great Britain with it gate tower still standing and has become the iconic image of Monmouth.  Wheatsheaves in the window’s design indicate that the glass came from the workshop of Charles Kempe
