Gwent is a mixture of agriculture and dairy farming to the East and mining and industry to the West. The Wye Valley forms the border with England and features some of the region's finest scenery. Newport is the administrative centre for the county, where a wide expanse of parkland is the setting for 17th- century Tredegar House. The North of the County is bordered by the Black Mountains and the Brecon Beacons and to the South is the Mouth of the River Severn and the two suspension bridges which takes the M4 over to England.
