This parish, which forms a part of the beautiful vale of Crickhowel, derives its name from the dedication of its church to St. Catwg, or Cadoc the Wise, an eminent British saint, who flourished in the sixth century. It is situated on the southern bank of the river Usk. The church is an ancient structure, in the decorated style of English architecture, with a remarkably strong embattled tower at the west end. There are places of worship for Calvinistic Methodists, Primitive Methodists, Wesleyans, and Independents.[1]
