Vauxhall Fields Walk


Old Dixton Road,
NP25 3DP


This is an easy walk with no stiles and one footbridge. Points of interest include the site of a water-powered forge built on the River Monnow at Osbaston in the 12th Century. In 1899, Monmouth Corporation built one of the first, publicly-owned electricity generating stations here. The current power station is owned by the Old Manor Electric Company; it uses two ‘Archimedes Screws’ to generate about 670 megawatts of electricity per year, enough to power 150 homes.
A mill first operated on the site of The Mill House (now a private house) in 1448. Corn was milled here from then until the early 20th century, when it became an engineering workshop.
