Dinham

DINHAM, an ancient parish, in the union and division of Chepstow, hundred of Caldicot, county of Monmouth, 5 miles (W. by S.) from Chepstow; containing 17 inhabitants. This place, now considered only a hamlet, comprises about 671 acres; the surface is for the greater part elevated, and the high grounds present some fine prospects. It lies close to the road between Monmouth and the new passage-ferry across the Severn. The living is a lay rectory, belonging to the Bishop, Archdeacon, and Chapter, of Llandaff, whose tithes have been commuted for £83. There is no trace of the church, but some slight remains exist of a castle which formerly stood here.
