Above a third of the parish is woodland, but on the banks of the Usk are some tracts of rich grazing land. The village is very small, and wholly agricultural. There are several quarries of stone, which is used for paving and roofing. The living is a rectory in the diocese of Llandaff, value 130. The church is a small edifice dedicated to All Saints."
