Situated in a very beautiful spot on two rivers, historically Abergavenny has guarded a strategic valley corridor between the Brecon Beacons and the Black Mountains. The town was an important Roman fort. The town entered a 200 year period of notoriety when William, a Norman baron - had a banquet for local Welsh notables in Abergevanny Castle. He had them slaughtered while they ate. The castle is now a ruin and the owner of the castle become baron of Abergavenny.
