Welcome to the home page of the Gwent High Sheriff's website.

High Sheriff

A J Clay Esq

Lower House Farm, Nantyderry, Abergavenny, Monmouthshire NP7 9DP

Tel: 01873 880257

Anthony Clay has lived in Monmouthshire since his early childhood. Indeed his Great Uncle, Great and Great Great Grandfathers all being High Sheriffs of Monmouthshire. He served 8 years in Ist The Queens Dragoon Guards, The Welsh Cavalry, in diverse postings including Germany Northern Ireland, Belize and Essex. On leaving he spent a further 20 years in The Shropshire Yeomanry.
Since leaving the army he has worked largely for Knight Frank, the property consultants, and until being nominated High Sheriff was partner in charge of their Hereford office. He still works full time for Knight Frank.
He sees his main responsibility as serving and supporting the four arms of the Justice System in Gwent, namely the Judiciary, Police, Prison and Support Services as well as enhancing the Gwent High Sheriff's Foundation which does so much for this large and diverse County. A personal campaign will be against litter. This is not just a problem in Gwent, it is everywhere, is completely disgraceful, and makes the UK and Gwent look and feel third world. Something must be done, by carrot or stick.
