In 1102 Robert de Hay made a gift of land and money to help establish a Benedictine Priory at Bassaleg, dedicated to St. Basil. Roger de Berechrolles, who dwelt at Rogerstone Castle, confirmed a gift of land to the Benedictines. In 1213 a further grant of three acres was made by Isabel Countess of Gloucester.
Here you can find information relating to both social and pastoral groups that play an active part in making St. Basil & St. Gwladys a community that is “Alive and Active” within Newport and the All Saints parish.
