Description

This 1980 photograph looks into Gwent from the Wales - England border. In 1974 Gwent was made a local government through the Local Government Act of 1972. It was abolished in 1996 under The Local Government Act 1994, which reconstructed Wales into twenty two unitary authority areas. Today Gwent continues to exist as a persevered county in Wales, with only minor border changes to reflect present government boundaries.
