About the building

The interior of this building was demolished in 1975 because of badly constructed interior and rear walls. Some fragments of inscriptions have been plastered into walls on the stairs leading to the first floor. The old building has been strengthened by steel girders throughout.

It was the Bell Hotel in 1788 and a copy of the peppercorn indenture is in the Abergavenny Museum.
