The parish, which is of small extent, is situated on the old road from Usk to Monmouth. The village consists of a few farmhouses. Stone is quarried for building purposes. The appropriate tithes, belonging to the Archdeacon and Chapter of Llandaff, have been commuted for a rent-charge of 50. The living is a perpetual curacy annexed to that of Llangoven, in the diocese of Llandaff. The church, dedicated to St. Martin, is an ancient structure. There is a village school. The parochial charities produce about 2 per annum."
