Parish church of St David
|Population:||7,606 (2011 census)|
The estate was built around the 17th-century St David's church, which is the likely origin of the name 'Bettws', a place of prayer or private chapel. St David's is a grade-two listed building.
The housing estate was built in the 1960s, and the large majority of houses are identical in plan and design. The roads in the estate are all named after rivers. 51.8% of housing is privately owned, and 42.6% is rented from either the Newport City Council or local housing associations.
In recent years it has benefited greatly from the introduction of sporting facilities such as new football pitches. Local sporting teams include Bettws RFC, Newport Civil Service F.C. and Malpas Cricket Club.
