Meetings are held on the first Wednesday of the month at Caldicot Scout Hall, at the corner of Sandy Lane and Jubilee Way, and begin at 7.30pm unless otherwise stated in the programme.

 


In the Domesday Book, written in 1086, Caldicot is recorded as being held under the sheriff Durand, "in the demesne three ploughs and fifteen villeins, four serfs and one man-at-arms. All these have twelve ploughs. Here is a mill of 10 shillings. All this is worth £6."

In the 925 years since that was written, Caldicot has grown to a size that no one could have foretold. It now has over 10,000 inhabitants.

RAILWAY VILLAGES OF SOUTH-EAST MONMOUTHSHIRE

Caldicot Local History Society is pleased to announce that Dr Robert Gant, who spoke to us last November on the Railway Villages in South-East Monmouthshire 1850-1900, has given permission for all of his articles from the Gwent Local History magazine and other publications to be published on this website. These date from 1970 to 2011 and look at the way our local communities have developed by examining census returns and other historical documents.
