Monmouthpedia has arrived!

Monmouth has become the first town in the UK - and the world - to be recognised as a 'Wikipedia town'.

Volunteers and businesses in Monmouth have been working to create an online encyclopedia, about the area's places and people.

Visitors can even learn more with their mobile phone, by scanning special barcodes on the town's landmarks.

The idea to create this page was thought up by John Cummings.

John was born and has lived most of his life in the historic town and thought that this was a way of sharing information with the world.
