Chepstow Rail Bridge

(see also Chepstow list)

(formerly listed as Chepstow Tubular Railway Suspension Bridge (Part in Lydney Road))



Rail bridge over river Wye. 1849 by Brunel. Cast and wrought iron and steel. One large inverted 'W' girder spans the river from the English (east) side to a group of six tubular iron supports, then three spans in simple channel form carried on two sets of three tubular iron supports on land on the Welsh (west) side, to heavy stone abutment to the railway embankment. Balustrade in profiled pressed steel. Most of the super-structure is not original, the principal Brunel work being in the tubular supports.
