"LLANDOGO, a parish in the upper division of the hundred of Ragland, county Monmouth, 6 miles S.E. of Monmouth, its post town, and 7 N. of Chepstow. It is situated at the foot of Beacon Hill, on the W. bank of the river Wye, which here makes a bend. The tide flows up to about this point. The village is remarkably neat, consisting of cottages rising one above another, interspersed with gardens and orchards, and backed by woods."
