History and amenities

Llangovan is close to Monmouth, the county town and is set in a quiet, rural area of rolling hills beneath the Trellech ridge. The small village church, dedicated to St Govan, is a Grade II* Listed Building. It is now closed and has a colony of bats. The churchyard contains an ornate medieval stone cross which is a Grade II listed building.

Nearby Court St. Lawrence, once home of Sir Geoffrey David Inkin, the High Sheriff of Gwent, is also a Grade II listed building.

In 2007 Penyclawdd and Llangovan Village Hall was completely refurbished.
