"Who wants to map Monmouthshire?"
-- attributed to Vanessa Lawrence, Chief Executive, Ordnance Survey
This beautiful, rural, borderland Welsh county is easily accessible by train or car; is superb cycling and walking territory; and has changed comparatively little in the last 60 years, meaning that OSM surveys can be augmented by New Popular Edition mapping.
Monmouthshire is both a Principal Area, as well as a historic county of Wales. Its county town is Monmouth, though the largest town (and only city) in the historic county is Newport.
