This dragon is Day of the X-Rated by Dominic Williams and it is in the subway area between the castle and the rest of the town. The mural behind it is commemorating the local coal industry.
This one was painted by my friend Alison Ludlow and is called Masquerade. It is just by the castle.
Continuing along by the river, the next dragon is called Draig Phoenix Guilin by Marion Webber. It is just by the fairly new footbridge across the river Usk.
This one is called Rodney and the artist is Gerard Whyman. I met Gerard when he knocked on our door and asked if he could take a photo of our house to paint it for some former residents, friends of his! He gave me a print , which I’m very fond of. His dragon stands in Rodney Parade, home of the local rugby club, Gwent Dragons. Very appropriate!
And lastly for today’s little tour, is the dragon by the bus station – if you look carefully, you can see the tourist bus in the background.
He is called Deano and the artist is Rhys Webber.
