Introducing Monmouthshire (Sir Fynwy)
Chepstow (Cas Gwent)
Chepstow is an attractive market town nestled in a great S-bend in the River Wye, with a splendid Norman castle perched dramatically on a cliff above the water. The town is also home to one of Britain's best known racecourses. Chepstow was first developed as a base for the Norman conquest of southeast Wales, later prospering as a port for the timber and wine trades.
