A Norman castle dramatically perched high above the river Wye in south east Wales. Construction began in 1067 after William the Conqueror was crowned King of England. It became the key launching point for expeditions into Wales that eventually subdued the rebellious population. Chepstow's Great Hall, begun in 1067, is the oldest surviving stone castle in Britain. It's still possible to see the remains. The hall originally stood alone and over the years the castle was enlarged such that today, the castle is uniquely shaped in a long rectangle as it was built in stages along the river.
