The Castle Gatehouse

The Castle Gatehouse

Flanked by towers, the massive gateway leading in to Chepstow Castle. Standing above a crossing point on the River Wye, this is one of the oldest castles in Britain and it boasts the oldest doors in Europe! Building began in 1067 under William Fitz Osbern, forming the southernmost in a chain of castles guarding the Welsh Marches. It was later used in the conquest of Gwent in the 12th century. In the 1600s, it became a Royalist stronghold but after the Civil War it fell into disuse. This image was captured from the public footpath surrounding the castle.
