"CALDICOTT, a parish in the upper division of the hundred of Caldicott, in the county of Monmouth, 5 miles to the S.W. of Chepstow, its post town. It is situated in a fertile district on the N. bank of the river Severn, near the South Wales railway, and is crossed by the Pill, a small stream which falls into the Severn. The whole level tract extending westward from this place to the mouth of the Usk is called Caldicott Level, and was first reclaimed, drained, and cultivated by the monks of Goldcliff. It was formerly called the Moors, and was frequently inundated."
