Llangattock Lingoed (Welsh: Llangatwg Lingoed) is a small rural village in Monmouthshire, south east Wales. It is located approximately five miles north of Abergavenny, between Abergavenny and Grosmont, a few miles south of the Wales-England border. Offa's Dyke Path passes through the village. The village is near the Black Mountains and the Brecon Beacons National Park.

Amenities and history[edit]

The parish church is St Cadoc's and both the village and the church have a long and interesting history sandwiched as they are in the Welsh Marches between border castles and the historical personalities holding sway at any given time.[1]

The Old Court is a Grade II* listed building situated in the village.[2]

The Cistercian Way long distance footpath that circumnavigates all of Wales also passes through the village.
