Abergavenny may have a calm and prosperous appearance today, but its history is littered with protest, conflict, massacre and punishment. Follow our QR codes around the town to discover this turbulent past, from the remains of Roman armour to a suffragette’s imprisonment for breaking a window. Along the circuit you’ll see where French prisoners of war set up a masonic chapter, find out where Owain Glyndŵr was reputedly let into the walled town by a female sympathiser, unlock war-memorial personal histories and discover the bizarre penalty for misbehaviour at a grammar school.
