Area profile

Rogerstone (Welsh: Tŷ du, meaning "Black house") is both a ward and community (parish) of the city of Newport, south-east Wales.

The parish lies at the gateway to the Sirhowy valley, to the north of Newport on the eastern side of the Ebbw River. It is bounded by the M4 motorway to the south, the Ebbw River to the west, the Henllys vale to the east and the city boundary with Caerphilly county borough to the north.

Rogerstone railway station is on the Ebbw Valley Railway. It opened on 6 February 2008 and links Ebbw Vale to Cardiff Central via Rogerstone. The Re-opening of the link from Rogerstone to Newport railway station is planned for 2011.

The designation of the Rogerstone section of the canal as part of the National Cycle Network (route 47) and more recent efforts to restore parts of the canal have made the site a popular tourist attraction.

Rogerstone was traditionally an industrial, working-class village, but recent expensive housing developments such as that on the site of the former power station has added more than 1,000 dwellings and an ever-increasing middle-class population. This has been influenced by the improved transport links. There are three primary schools within Rogerstone; Rogerstone Primary, Mount Pleasant Primary and High Cross Primary.

Newport golf club and Tredegar Park golf club are located at Rogerstone.
