Pavement Plaques

The Society has been active in identifying the key buildings along the Historic Spine through the installation of pavement plaques. Each plaque is individually designed for the property and is made by the Chepstow ceramic designer, Ned Heywood. The scheme was launched in October 2017, with an appeal for funding in September 2019. The plan is for 24 plaques to be laid in front of the most significant buildings in the town, detailing their history and importance. In February 2023, five new plaques were unveiled at an event at Harvard House, with the historian Michael Wood.
