Chepstow: Past, People And Places

Chepstow - a beautiful town nestling on the banks of the River Wye, the gateway between England and Wales - has been at the heart of many of the events that have shaped history.

Turn back the pages of time and celebrate the town's fascinating story, starting at Chepstow Castle, the first datable stone castle in the country when built in 1067. From its origins as an awesome statement of the Norman Conquest, to its bloody siege in the Civil War 600 years later, it is central to Chepstow's history.

St Mary's Church also dates back to the 11th century. The film gives a structural history and explores the tombs of Henry Marten, the Marquis of Worcester and Margaret Cleyton.

Other highlights include the Chartist movement of early Victorian times, the famous bridges of Rastrick and Brunel, the Cenotaph, a tribute to William Williams V.C. and the story of the Port, Docks and Shipyard.
