[Description(s) from The National Gazetteer (1868)]
"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.

The living is a perpetual curacy* in the diocese of Llandaff, value with the curacy of Whitebrook annexed, £112, in the patronage of the bishop. The church is dedicated to St. Dochoe. The charities produce about £1 per annum."
