The small village of Aberbeeg (Welsh: Aber-bîg) lies in the county borough of Blaenau Gwent, traditional county of Monmouthshire, southern Wales. It is a former mining community which thrived during the days of the South Wales coal mining community. Nearby are the villages of Llanhilleth and Six Bells.
Today, one of the most prominent sights in Aberbeeg area is the St. Illtyd's church, which is thought to have been built in the late 5th century, and underwent extensive renovation over the last 200 years. After closing in 1962, the church was privately acquired in 1984. It has now returned to public ownership and is now open to visitors. The friends of St. Illtyd help Blaenau Gwent look after the building.
