Llanddewi Skirrid (Welsh: Llanddewi Ysgyryd) is a beautiful village situated to the East of Abergavenny,
along the A4521 Old Ross Road and under the shadow of the
Skirrid Fawr mountain
(also known as the Holy Mountain -- there was once a church on the summit). In
some ways, it doesn't look like a village as many of the houses are spread
widely along the roads. There are more houses along Brynygwenin road, which runs
south from the edge of the village. Just for confusion, the parish of Llanddewi
Skirrid includes only some of the houses along Brynygwenin road, although
everyone is a part of the same great community.
In Welsh, Llanddewi Skirrid means 'The church of St David by the great
divided hill', while Brynygwenin means 'bee hill'. Variants on spellings for
Llanddewi include Llandewi and Llanthewy. Alternatives seen for Skirrid include Skyrrid,
Sgyrid and, in the original Welsh, Ysgyryd.
