Upper Cwmyoy was a parochial area within the parish of Cwmyoy until about 1894 when it became a separate civil parish in Abergavenny Rural District. It contained the village of Llanthony and also the abbey and priory of that name.

Llanthony Priory

the text in this section is based on an article in Wikipedia

Llanthony Priory (Welsh: Priordy Llanddewi Nant Hodni) is a partly ruined former Augustinian priory in the secluded Vale of Ewyas, a steep sided once glaciated valley within the Black Mountains area of the Brecon Beacons National Park in Monmouthshire, Wales. It lies seven miles north of Abergavenny on an old road to Hay-on-Wye at Llanthony.

For more information, see the EN Wikipedia article Llanthony Priory.

Llanthony Abbey is one of the buildings of the priory, now a hotel.

In 1935, in a move to reduce the number of parishes within Abergavenny Rural District, Upper Cwmyoy was absorbed into the civil parish of Crucornau Fawr.
