Usk, Monmouthshire
Usk is a small town in Monmouthshire, Wales. The town lies south west of Llandenny, north east of Coed-y-poen, east of Pontypool and south east of Llanover. Nearby towns and villages include Llancayo, Llanbadoc, Rhayadr, Gwernesney and Monkswood.
Usk is one of the oldest towns in Wales and the town's history is recorded back to Roman times.
There are two cycle routes running through the town and the 48-mile long distance footpath, the Usk Valley Walk, also weaves its way through the town. The Usk Valley Walk stretches through the valley from Caerleon in the south to Brecon in the north west.
For a nice day out take a walk through the beautiful Vale of Usk to appreciate the true beauty of its largely unspoilt countryside.
The more energetic can follow the trail the whole way and visit the market towns of Caerleon, Usk, Chain Bridge, Llanvihangel Gobion, Llanellen, Abergavenny, Govilon, Llangattock, Crickhowell, Llangynidr, Aber, Talybont on Usk and Brecon. You are never far from the hills of the Brecon Beacons to the west or the Black Mountains to the east.
The River Usk runs through the village (Afon Wysg in Welsh). It rises on the northern slopes of the Black Mountain (below Fan Brycheiniog) in Powys, Wales. The River Usk tumbles for most of its upper and middle reaches through the beautiful Brecon Beacons National Park. After passing through the market town of Brecon and the pretty little town of Crickhowell, the river runs through the Usk Valley before leaving the National Park at Abergavenny and meandering through the farmland of the broader valley beyond. Shortly after passing Usk, the river becomes tidal and enters the Bristol Channel at Newport.
