Notes

Kelly's 1901 Directory describes:-

"BLAINA is a large village with a station on the Monmouthshire section of the Great Western railway. Here are the Blaina tinplate works and furnaces, and in the vicinity are many collieries, giving employment to a great number of hands. There is a large hall, which is used for public meetings, and will hold 1,000 persons.
The soil of the parish is all mountain land, scarcely any cultivated, but there are a few farms amongst the hills; nearly the whole country is taken up by iron works, mines and collieries."

"RISCA is a parish and village in the valley between the lofty Twyn Barlwyn (Maen) and the Machen mountains, on the Monmouthshire canal, which runs through the parish, and on the Western Valleys section of the Great Western railway, which here forms a junction with the Sirhowy line. There are stations at Risca village and Cross Keys, both in the parish, which is 6 miles north-west-by-west from Newport.
The village is lighted with gas by a company reformed in May, 1891. A company was formed in 1891 to supply the parish with water.
Here are collieries, a large tinplate manufactory, the works of the Monmouthshire Steel and Tinplate Co. Limited, the extensive iron and steel foundry of Messrs. Henry White and Co. a brewery, fire brick works and lime kilns."
