Llanveynoe is a village and civil parish in Herefordshire, adjacent to the borders with Brecknockshire and Monmouthshire. It lies near the Brecon Beacons National Park, 14 miles north of Abergavenny and the same distance south-west of Hereford. The civil parish corresponds to the chapelry of the ancient parish of Clodock and had a population of 104 in the 2001 UK Census.[2]

The village is situated on a ridge of higher land between the Olchon Valley and the valley of the River Monnow.

In the Herefordshire volume of The Buildings of England, Pevsner noted the beautiful setting and views from the church but regarded the building as being of little architectural interest following restoration in the 19th-century.[3]
