Chepstow Bridge (see also Item 3/18 Chepstow list)



Road bridge over river Wye. Dated 1816, by John Raistrick. Cast iron carried on five ribs of five segmental arches graded from the centre and carried on four massive stone breakwaters, approximately elliptical, and with larger plinths at low water level; abutment on Chepstow side, and abutment to right-angled return in road on Tutshill side. Continuous plain railed balustrade with evenly spaced standards to each eleven square balusters, decorative panel at centre, each side of roadway with elaborate lamp standards incorporated, and cast lettering in silhouette: ANNO DOMINI 1816 and MONMOUTH to South GLOUCESTER to north: the bridge is half in Wales and half in England. Also eight further decorative panels included in balustrade. A singularly graceful design with roadway rising to centre.
