Monmouthshire is one of thirteen historic counties in Wales. It is also referred to as the County of Monmouth and is located in the south east of Wales. The county was formed in 1535.
There are many places of interest in the county including numerous castles such as Chepstow Castle, which is the oldest surviving post-Roman stone fortification in Britain.
Monmouthshire is also an area of outstanding natural beauty, with many valleys and mountain ranges, such as the Black Mountains.
The residents of Monmouthshire, like the residents elsewhere in Wales and England face the same risks of accidents and injury. Often accidents could be avoided with some due care. Unfortunately many people are so busy and not considerate that they ignore the risks their actions pose. As a result they could cause serious injuries.
