These almshouses were built in 1913 by Colonel H Burton MD and Miss S E Burton. The Colonel, who had died in 1908, was an important local landowner living at The Slough farm, one of the two principal farms in Caerwent. The almshouses were intended as a memorial to him and were designed for twelve 'old and decrepit' women.
Interior not available at time of resurvey.
