Bedwellty was a county constituency in Monmouthshiremarker which returned one Member of Parliament to the House of Commonsmarker of the Parliament of the United Kingdommarker from 1918 until it was abolished for the 1983 general election.

It was then largely replaced by the new Islwyn constituencymarker.


The constituency consisted of the urban districts of Bedwas and Machen, Bedwellty, Mynyddislwyn and Riscamarker and the civil parish of Rogerstonemarker in St Mellons Rural District. These areas had previously been divided between the West Monmouthshire and South Monmouthshire constituencies.

The House of Commons Act 1949 removed Rogerstone into the constituency of Monmouthmarker from 1950. Although there were substantial changes in local government boundaries in 1974, those of the constituency were not altered prior to its abolition in 1983.

The constituency was abolished by the Parliamentary Constituencies (Wales) Order 1983, which redistributed Commons seats and aligned boundaries with wards of the districts created by the Local Government Act 1972.
