Dr Elin Jones and Rhodri Davies recently visited Plas Gunter Mansion to film an item for ‘Heno’, S4C’s Welsh language TV magazine show.

The film provides a fascinating overview of the building’s association with Saint David Lewis, Catholicism in Abergavenny, and the religious struggles following the Restoration in the 1660s and 1670s.

It was broadcast on Wednesday 29th August 2018 and is available to stream and download on the BBC iPlayer until 28th September 2018, www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/p06hkjqb/heno-wed-29-aug-2018
