The ward is bounded by the Ebbw River and M4 motorway to the east, the city boundary to the north and west. The southern boundary is formed by a line from the M4/A467 intersection in a roughly westerly direction as far as the city boundary.
The ward contains Bassaleg, Rhiwderin and the hamlet of Lower Machen. It also contains the western half of the Foxgloves estate — as the Ebbw passes through the centre, the eastern half is in Rogerstone.
Location of a large Roman fort and its earthworks can been seen from the motorway.
