Abbey of Cwmhir Study Group:

The Granges & Charters of Cwmhir Abbey

The food for the 60 monks and even more lay brothers - so many thay had to build a very long nave for them, perhaps - had to come from somewhere. It came from farms, fishpools, and forests within a days ride on horseback or on a cart from Abbey Cwmhir. We will find out where they were and who gave them to the Abbey in a charter.

Each member of the group is contributing information on an aspect of this subject. To find out what you might contribute and get a copy of the background papers before coming to the next meeting email: 01597 851021

The Abbeycwmhir Heritage Trust pays tribute to the publishers of the journals and books which we are consulting and thanks them for making them available on the web and in libraries. In particular we thank the Radnorshire Society Transactions, Archaeologica Cambrensis, the Transactions of the Honourable Society of Cymmrodorion and Powys Libraries.
