Charles Stewart Rolls

Charles Stewart Rolls

Returning from a visit to Hereford, we stopped in Monmouth. I hadn’t realised that Jenny had never seen the town. Quite apart from the historic gatehouse over the river, the town is now famous for its self-styled Monmouthpedia virtual existence, with QR-codes all round the town. Of much greater interest than that are its two famous sons – Henry of Monmouth (Henry V of England) and one I didn’t know – Charles Stewart Rolls (of Rolls Royce engine fame). They’re both commemorated outside the Town Hall.
