History

Chepstow in 1953

Chepstow is one of the Primary Destinations where the town's road network has hardly changed since the war. The biggest change, apart from the arrival of the M4 (now M48) several miles to the south, is that the A48 has been provided with a new bridge across the River Wye, resulting in it being diverted away from the eastern end of the town centre. The only other change is that the A466 spur into the town centre has been downgraded to become part of an extended B4293.
