The Gwent Levels represent a unique example of a man-made landscape of extraordinary archaeological richness.

The Levels were reclaimed from the sea from the Roman period onwards and exhibit distinctive settlement patterns. The enclosures and drainage systems bear witness to successive generations of use.

Redwick is the largest village on the Levels and lies at an important crossroads in the central-southern part of the parish and is on the higher coastal part of the Caldicot Level.

The village is aligned on an east-west axis, with the church at the southern end and Redwick House at the far north end of the village.

The Church of St. Thomas is possibly of 12th century origin and is listed grade l.

Periods of development evident today are from the medieval period with phases of building from the 14th, 15th and 19th centuries. Brick House, a late 18th century former farm house now converted to a hotel is listed grade ll but is outside of the conservation area boundary.

Modern Redwick is a pleasant rural village displaying a variety of building types, dates and styles.

The many standard fruit trees and traditional orchards provide a distinctive foil for some fine buildings and for the village as a whole.
