Community

Llangattock is vibrant community with numerous volunteer groups, all striving to make the village a better place. 

Social activity revolves around the council-owned and maintained recreation ground and the village pub, restaurant and hotel.

There is a community hall and Primary School and the shopping centre of Crickhowell, winner of the 2018 Best High Street in the UK, is a short walk away. 

There are outdoor activities including horse riding, boat hire, walking and cycling.  And there are groups to join and events to enjoy.  Visit our history page to find out more about the area.

There are hundreds of miles of footpaths in the Brecon Beacons, with some strenuous climbs and more gentle ambles along the Monmouthsire and Brecon Canal.  If you just want to take in the sites, why not enjoy sitting on one of the benches in the council-owned Glebe Field overlooking Crickhowell Bridge.
