Old A48 - Coppermine - 11707.jpg
Old A48

The single file Chepstow Bridge. Until the opening of the Severn Bridge in Sept 1966, this was the trunk route between London, the South and South Wales, via the A40 to Gloucester and then A48. A major bottleneck, even in the 50's and 60's.

The bypass can be seen in the background, with the under girder rail bridge just beyond. The bypass opened around the late 80's.

In the distance is the 1988 bridge carrying the A48 and a two-track railway line across the River Wye from Wales (on the right) to England, viewed from the 1816 bridge.

From Chepstow Castle the older bridge is still striking as it crosses the Wye.
