Nice Campston, close to Abergavenny, is considered principally comprised of seventeenth Century additions, however it’s understood that there was a settlement on the positioning since at the very least the twelfth century.

Initially belonging to the Cistercian Abbey at Dore, after the Dissolution of the Monasteries in 1536, Campston was granted to John Cokke of London and in 1600 got here into the possession of John Pritchard.

The Pritchard household lived there for a few years and Charles II was entertained at Nice Campston in 1645 on his strategy to Raglan.
