Monmouthshire Wards

With a population of around 91,000 and stretching from Caldicot to Abergavenny, Monmouthshire covers 330 square miles of farmland, forestry, mountains and rivers.

Celebrated for its ancient market towns, Monmouthshire is revered as one of the most picturesque counties in the UK, boasting rolling hills and quiet valleys, scenic footpaths, and fine views over green countryside. Monmouthshire has the most castles per square mile of any place in Britain and its towns and villages are characterful, with historic buildings and individual shops.

The economy is mainly based on the agricultural industry, however, tourism in the area now accounts for almost a quarter of employment and therefore lies at the centre of the economic development strategy.
