Chepstow Castle and Wye Bridge from Tutshill

Chepstow is a small town on the River Wye, the border between England and Wales. The Castle dates from the Norman conquest, the oldest stone castle in the country, and the town is still ringed by its medieval walls.

As the lowest crossing point on the Wye, the Wye bridge has been important since Roman times. Now it's the backdrop for Waltz on the Wye .

In Victorian times the railway came to Chepstow. This in turn needed a bridge, for which everyone's favourite engineer, Brunel (Huzzah!) obliged. The bridge needed a factory to build it, which in turn gave rise to Chepstow as a builder of small ships and more bridges. In time, Chepstow even invented the dry ski slope.
