Southern entrance to Chepstow racecourse
Chepstow racecourse opened here in Piercefield Park in August 1926.
This part of the site perimeter pre-dates the racecourse by more than a century. The boundary wall of Piercefield Park (which surrounds the country house Piercefield House, now largely ruined) was built in 1794. The gate piers topped by stone lions couchant may date from the same year. The two lodges, railings and gates are thought to date from 1833, during the period of the opening of Piercefield to the public.
