Local historian “Kim” Kimber (1921 – 2015) edited two volumes on Penallt history, “Penallt – A Village Miscellany” first published in 1989 (see its Introduction for full authorship credits) and “Penallt Revisited”, published in 2009.
The Trellech and Penallt PCC has kindly agreed that materials from these volumes may be published online and this work has now been completed. Every chapter has been digitised and, where possible, new images have been added too.
