Chepstow castle and Wye bridge from Tutshill

The River Wye (Welsh: Afon Gwy) forms the boundary between England and Wales. Until recently, Chepstow was the lowest bridging point across it. The Wye bridge was an important crossing point for all the traffic between the two.

The lower Wye, around Chepstow, is strongly tidal and boating here requires careful local knowledge. It is possible to travel up-river as far as Tintern. The only way to visit much of this beautiful river valley is by boat or foot as there is no road access.

Unless one should be a Royalist that is, for Wintour's Leap commemorates where Sir John Wintour is claimed to have leapt from the cliffs above, yet survived.
