June 2007: Great Trerhew - White Castle trail leaflet launched

A SECOND Land and Legends Trail exploring Monmouthshire’s cultural heritage has been launched for walkers to enjoy, this time in the Llanvetherine area, taking in White Castle and Great Trerhew Farm.

The Village Alive Trust, a local buildings preservation charity based in the Llangattock Lingoed area, launched the trail on Saturday. Trust member Eric Evans contributed illustrations and text to the trail leaflet.

The project has been funded by adventa, Monmouthshire’s LEADER+ rural development programme funded by the European Agricultural Guidance and Guarantee Fund, the Welsh Assembly Government and Monmouthshire County Council.

The trail consists of two circular walks, one of 2.2 miles and one of 1.75 miles, using either White Castle car park or Llanvetherine lay-by as start points. There are interpretation boards at several points and the trail leaflet, which will be stocked at tourism outlets, contains information on the castle, water mill site and corn barn that can be seen along the walk.

Pictured holding the trail leaflet at the launch is 13 year-old Daniel Beavan watched by Village Alive Trust supporters with Trustees Ken Prandy and Rebekah Browning, secretary Rev Dr Jean Prosser, leaflet designer Eric Evans and Trevor and Anne Beavan, of Great Trerhew Farm.
