The Priory, Llandogo Vintage Postcard

Here is another couple of pictures from my Large Postcard Collection. The first one was posted on the 4th June 1954 from Ross on Wye, Herefordshire to a Chapman, 36 Hill Road, West Worthing, Sussex. The picture shows the Priory, Llandogo, Monmouthshire, Wales. I am not sure the date is correct as the stamp is of King George VI who had died in 1952.
