Pandy, Monmouthshire is a hamlet (place) in Monmouthshire, south east Wales, United Kingdom.
Location Pandy is located five miles north of Abergavenny on the A465 road to Hereford immediately to the north of Llanfihangel Crucorney. The England - Wales border is one mile to the north and Offa's Dyke Path passes through the village.
History The village of Pandy is spread out from the Pandy watermill at Allt-yr-Ynys to the north to the edge of the village of Llanfihangel Crucorney to the south. The fulling mill at Pandy served the Llanover estate in the 1600s producing wool which was turned into Welsh flannel.
The village was on a route used by the early railways, with the Abergavenny to Hereford line still passing to the west. There was at one time the Grosmont tramroad as well, now demolished. Raymond Williams was born in a cottage next to Offa's Dyke where his father was a railway signalman on the Hereford to Abergavenny railway line.
The village was redeveloped in the Victorian era by a pioneering lady architect, Bernadette Rocher who in the 1870s extended and reworked many of the older properties in local red sandstone. She is buried at the parish church at Oldcastle, Monmouthshire a short distance to the northwest.
Amenities The village has no parish church, but has two Nonconformist chapels.
The village has several campsites and small caravan parks and three pubs. The housing is a mix of Victorian era cottages, farms and villas and some 1970s housing estates such as Wern Gifford.
The Black Mountains, Wales rise up to the west of the village with the outlying Skirrid looming high over the village to the east.
