THE RIVER RUNNING BY  An Historical Journey Through the Monnow Valley, by Joan Fleming-Yates (Published 2005, 235pages, illustrated, £10)

The river Monnow flows from the Black Mountains on its way to join the river Wye at Monmouth. Alongside the river are nineteen parishes, some in England, some in Wales. Because the river Monnow is the border between England and Wales it has had a special importance locally. From the time of the ancient Kingdom of Archenfield the English and Welsh influence has been felt. The 17th and 18th centuries were very troubled in the valley with the persecution of the Catholics. The book, which is fully illustrated, also tells the stories of what might have happened if the plans to make the river Monnow navigable, to improve the toll road system and finally to extend the Golden Valley Railway through the valley had come to fruition.
