About Chepstow

Chepstow, although in Wales, is just a stone's throw across the river Wye from Gloucestershire, and, although I am sure there are many that would dispute this, the town has a very pretty English town atmosphere. It is beautifully set on the river Wye close to its confluence with the river Severn, and enjoys being near many places of interest and some of the most lovely undulating walking country in both England and Wales.

It is close to the western end of the Severn Bridge on the M48 and is easily reached from London and the south-east.

Chepstow boasts the oldest surviving stone castle in Britain. It was constructed by William the Conqueror in 1067 and was strategically important because it controlled a crossing of the river Wye. It is also close to Offa's Dyke, the south end of which can be found at the nearby village of Sedbury.

The market town was at one time a port shipping timber, leather and paper. Many boats were build at Chepstow. A good view of the Castle can be had from the elegant cast iron 1816 road bridge which spans the Wye. The bridge was built by engineer John Raistrick and is an elegant example of Regency period construction.

The Welsh Grand National is held annually at Chepstow Race Course, which is also used for Sunday markets and hobby and antique fairs throughout the year.

The town hosts a biannual two rivers folk festival when the town fills with Morris dancers from all over the country. Local ale is sold during the three days of the festival, traffic is diverted, and bumbling amateurs are pulled into the dance by nimble footed professionals, and the Lord of Merriment rules the old town. Chepstow also boasts the National Diving and Activity Centre, which offers the best inland diving facilities in Britain.

The railway runs from Birmingham, to Chepstow, Cardiff and Swansea.
