Regimental Museum - Monmouth
This small volunteer-run museum, with free admission, tells the story of the Royal Monmouthshire Royal Engineers - the only present-day regiment to have survived from the Militia. From a muster in 1539 it evolved into a Posse Comitatus and, after enduring sieges in the Civil War, was a Militia Regiment for two centuries. In 1877 it became a Reserve Engineer Regiment, and in this role has served in the wars of the 20th century.

Monnow Bridge Gate is a late 13th century stone fortified two storey gate tower, founded by Henry of Lancaster. The gate stands on a three span stone bridge of 1272, which replaced a mid to late 12th century timber bridge. Defended on the Welsh side of the River Monnow, by the Clawdd Ddu rampart and ditch, the single arched passage originally had a portcullis in front of a pair of doors. It is now the only remaining example in Britain, where the gate actually stands on a medieval river bridge.
