Note:  Do not rely on this information. It is very old.


Chepstow, a town and port of England in Monmouthshire, is situated on the right bank of the Wye, which is crossed here by Brunel's tubular railway bridge. The tides are higher here than in any other part of Britain, and allow ships of considerable burden to go right up to Chepstow. The old castle is referred to the time of the Conqueror. Among the industries is shipbuilding, and among the exports are cider and mill-stones.
