| Newport East|
Kemeys Inferior is a hamlet and ancient parish in Monmouthshire, located three miles north-east of Caerleon and 6½ miles south-west of Usk. The part of the parish nearest the River Usk forms part of the Usk Hundred while the rest forms part of the Caldicot Hundred.
An 18th-century folly stands in Kemeys Inferior. A former hunting lodge, the folly was built in 1712 by local landowner George Kemeys. It was converted into a luxury home in 2007 and featured on TV property show Grand Designs. It is Grade II listed.
The mediæval parish church of All Saints used to stand between the River Usk and Kemeys Manor, but it was demolished in 1960-62 to make way for the A449 dual carriageway. The stone was used to build a new choir at St Woolos Cathedral in Newport.
The parish includes part of the Celtic Manor 'Twenty 10' golf course, home of the 2010 Ryder Cup. The hotel itself is in the neighbouring parish of Christchurch.
