Caldicot Profile

Home >>Caldicot >>Profile



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 900 years since that was written, Caldicot has grown to a size that no one could have foretold. It now has around 10,000 inhabitants.

Caldicot is located the the south east corner of Wales in the county of Monmouthshire. As can be seen from the map we are surrounded by motorways, with the M48 to the north and the M4 to the south. The main line from South Wales to London also runs though the town. These transport links make Caldicot an ideal place to live and commute to work.

Caldicot is conveniently located between Cardiff (30miles/50 km) to the west and Bristol (20miles/30 km) to the east. London is less than 2 hours away by train. Cardiff and Bristol also have international airports with destinations throughout the world.
