Superbly set high upon its river cliff above the Wye, Chepstow Castle still guards one of the main river crossings from southern England into Wales. Few castles in Britain tell the story of medieval fortification, from beginning to end, as does this mighty stronghold. It was probably the very first stone castle in the entire country, and was to see successive developments right through to the Civil War of the 17th century.More pictures of Chepstow Castle by Patrick Hogan...

The side lighting picks out the castle and cliff very well
Good shot of this magnificent building .
Wonderful pic of the Castle Patrick, lighting, detail and viewpoint all highlight this stunning castle. Have to admit to special interest here as my wife is on the family tree from the de Clares and Marshal family.
