Wattsville is a small typical Welsh valley village in the Sirhowy valley, 8 miles north west of Newport, county capital, in south-east Wales, within the historic boundaries of Monmouthshire. It consists of one main street with another hugging the valley below. Wattsville is the base for the Sirhowy valley country park, starting at the tourist centre in Full Moon Cottage, a site for walking and mountain biking on the old railway. Further up the valley at Cwmfelinfach is the old site of Nine Mile Point colliery. This was the site of the first ever 'sit in' of miners. At Wattsville the New Risca Mine, open 1878 and was 855 feet deep. It was located on the eastern edge of wattsville and was the first colliery in South Wales to have electric lighting at the pit head and underground in 1892.

The bassist and lyricist of the Manic Street Preachers Nicky Wire lived in Wattsville and wrote a song about the village called "Wattsville Blues", where he describes his love of the village. It is also the second song released on an album where he is the lead vocalist, after co-lead vocals with James Dean Bradfield on "My Little Empire" from album "This Is My Truth Tell Me Yours". The song appears on the album Know Your Enemy.
