The majority of the housing in the area was built in the 1930s on land formerly owned by the Tredegar Estate (the Morgans of Tredegar House) which at the time was outside the boundaries of the county borough of Newport.
Separated from the city centre by the M4 motorway, the area includes the Fourteen Locks, a flight of canal locks on the Crumlin arm of the Monmouthshire Canal. There is a large open area known as Cefn Wood at the north end of High Cross.
