Barnardtown, Newport

Barnardtown is a small area to the east of Newport Bridge in the city of Newport. It is roughly bounded by Duckpool Road, Church Road and Caerleon Road. The original houses in the area were very slum-like tight rows with people living in appalling conditions. A local religious man Edward Barnard invested into building small new terraces. The area became known as Barnard's town, later to become Barnardtown. Because of this, early OS maps do not show the name of the area.
