Abergavenny Market

Abergavenny is a market town in Monmouthshire, Wales.

It is was promoted as "The Gateway to Wales" as it is not only quite near to the border with our neighbour England but is also on one of the main trunk roads.

Originally the site of a Roman Fort and was for some time a walled town.

It has a ruined castle (A future blog for sure), but today I would like to show images of the Market. There are a number of themed markets during the week and it was the turn of the "Flea Market" in the Market Hall when I visited last spring.

I was intrigued by the sculptures attached to the ceiling of the market which were handcrafted for the Food Festival that was held in the town some time ago.

The names given to places always seem to give away the point of view of the name giver, don't they? This town could just have well been called "The Gateway to England" smile

Yes I would agree, I suppose any "gateway" is a two way street. Although I think "The gateway to England" was already taken for Dover the eastern town on the English channel (or perhaps the gateway to France) smile
