Plan of building plots for sale in Caerleon 1895
Bob Trett has sent this information about the triangular patch of land that was not built on below the railway line. He says: "This is because it had been acquired for the Newport and Usk Railway Company (est 1865) to construct a line diverging from the Pontypool, Caerleon and Newport line, and crossing the Afon Lwyd at Pont Sadwrn. You can still see the railway bridge footings from the present road bridge. The Southern side of the white triangle marks the line of the railway. However the Newport and Usk line was never completed. Railways had had their hey-day!"
