I walked into Chepstow today - about 9 miles round trip, I think. The way out was a bit dull, but coolish; just after I got there the sun came out and the return trip was a bit warm and sweaty
Here are some views from the walk and from Chepstow - there might be a couple of surprises in there!!!
Yes, those are ostriches.... I nearly fell over the first time I saw them! There's an ostrich farm a mile or two outside Chepstow, and they roam around in the fields out back. Adds a real smile to my walks!
Chepstow is a lovely old market town with a well-preserved castle and fortifying walls.
Its got plenty of other historic buildings, reminders of war...
and its a bit of a mecca for tourists. But feels good to the locals as well!
and it has some amazing views over the hills and far away...
