The Community of Llangattock lies in the south-east corner of the County of Powys, to the south of the River Usk opposite the market town of Crickhowell. It is also within the Brecon Beacons National Park, and is an area of great natural beauty, dominated by the limestone crags of Mynydd Llangatwg. ‘Llangattock’ is the anglicised version of the Welsh name ‘Llangatwg’ (Llan – a church or enclosure; Catwg – the Patron Saint).

The origins of the village are likely to have been associated with the ecclesiastical settlement, and the oldest part of Llangattock is centred round St Catwg’s Church, which dates back to the 11th Century. Llangattock village lies in the valley, but there are also the outlying hamlets of the Dardy, Ffawyddog, Legar and Hillside, which form the wider settlement of Llangattock. The present population is approximately 1200.

Llangattock Community Council consists of ten elected members representing all of the people in the Community. Council meetings are held on the third Tuesday of the month at Llangattock Community Hall. The Council has responsibility for a beautifully situated Recreation Ground with children’s play equipment; also, a cemetery and village car park.
