Breach in the wall
Breach in the wall
The Port Wall used to extend from the castle to the river below the bridge some three-quarters of a mile away. It was built in the late thirteenth century by the lord of Chepstow, Roger Bigod and enclosed the early town, keeping it safe from attack. However, the architects of this impressive wall (about 1,100m long) would not have counted on the modern planners who have made this breach in the latter part of the twentieth century to provide a car park.
