1. The Kingdom of Gwent was a post-Roman Welsh kingdom in existence from C.5th to C.11th.

2. Gwent County was formed in 1974 and was named after the kingdom of Gwent.

3. Gwent comprised the following districts: Blaenau Gwent District, Islwyn District, Monmouth District, Newport District and Torfaen District.

4. But Gwent as a county authority ceased to exist as of April 1996, though the county name is still used as a 'preserved county', and one certainly still thinks of it as a county postally. Gwent County's population is 560,500.

6. The Guardian Sculpture: Completed in 2010, 'Guardian' was commissioned to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the 1960 mining disaster in Six Bells.  The 20 metre sculpture towers over the site of the former colliery as a tribute to the 45 men who died here. Their names are listed on panels around the memorial.

Six Bells is south of Abertillery. View the Guardian from the visitor centre at Ty Ebbw Fach - post code for sat nav NP13 2ND.

Ideas for your wedding decorations
and wedding theme
based on the history
facts, facilities and attractions in Gwent
