E.) from Abergavenny; comprising the Citra and Ultra divisions, and containing 808 inhabitants. The parish is intersected by the road to Hereford, and comprises 6550 acres, of which 950 are common or waste. It is beautifully situated, nearly in the centre of a district surrounded by mountains, the principal of which are the Sugar Loaf to the west, the Great Skirrid or Holy mountain to the east, and the Little Skirrid and Blorenge mountains to the south. A tramroad from Abergavenny to Hereford crosses the parish, through which also flows the Gavenny river. The living is a discharged vicarage, valued in the king's books at £8. 3. 9., and in the patronage of the Chapter of Llandaff, the appropriators: the great tithes have been commuted for £370, and the vicarial for £252. 10.; the glebe comprises 66 acres, with a small vicarage-house. The church is an ancient structure, with a square tower on the north side. A small chapel of ease at Bettws, in the parish, has been rebuilt. There is a place of worship for Independents.
