Description

What can you write about Abergavenny that hasn't already been written? Quite a lot, as local author Tim Butters poignantly proves in A-Z of Abergavenny. The shadows surrounding local legends are investigated and new light is cast on familiar subjects in a book that barely pauses for breath as it thunders from A to Z in a no-holds-barred roller coaster ride. This fascinating new book brings the past to life and contrasts it with the present as readers embark on a twenty-six-step voyage of discovery to view the buildings, landmarks, streets and people who helped put this magical Monmouthshire market town on the map. Explore the mystery behind Abergavenny's underground tunnels, prepare to be baffled by the bizarre tribe who founded a mountainside settlement, shudder at the Spanish serial killer who murdered an entire family, and marvel in awe at the Old Testament preacher who founded an Anglo-Catholic underworld in the town. This fully illustrated encyclopedia will lead you off the beaten track, down the wayward path, and into a past where no stone is left unturned.
