Llangarron, Herefordshire

Llangarron is a small village and civil parish in southwest Herefordshire within seven miles of Ross-on-Wye and Monmouth. The church is dedicated to St. Deinst. The village no longer has a post office or pub, though it does have a hall. The name (also spelt Llangarren and Llangarran) refers to the Garron Brook, a tributary of the River Wye. Several local farms have Welsh names, a legacy of the fluid nature of the England-Wales border in the past.
