About

Please see PDF below for route map.

1.75 mile walk through part of the town and around Vauxhall Fields.

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.
