Signpost at a Pwllmeyric road junction
Signpost at a Pwllmeyric road junction
The signpost is on the corner of the A48, viewed from this LinkExternal link lane.
Arms point along the A48: NE towards Chepstow (1 miles) and SW towards Newport (14 miles). The sign pointing right shows 3 miles to Shirenewton. The sign has the Welsh form of Shirenewton, Drenewydd Gelli-farch, (new settlement at the stallion's grove). Kelly's Directory of Monmouthshire 1901 edition notes that "The old Welsh name of this parish... appears to have been but seldom used." and the same is probably true today.
