The Govilon History Team have compiled directories from the parish of Llanwenarth Ultra (of which Govilon is a part). Directories were very much like today's Yellow Pages. They contained a list of all the businesses and tradespeople located in a area, along with details of the local gentry, landowners, charities and facilities.
