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.

After the bridge is a very narrow one way system through the town.

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