Chepstow Castle (Welsh: Castell Cas-gwent) at Chepstow, Monmouthshire, Wales is the oldest surviving post-Roman stone fortification in Britain. Located above cliffs on the River Wye, construction began in 1067 under the instruction of the Norman Lord William FitzOsbern. Originally known as Striguil, it was the southernmost of a chain of castles built in the Welsh Marches, and with its attached lordship took the name of the adjoining market town in about the 14th century.

The Great Tower of Chepstow Castle is probably the most important surviving domestic medieval building in Wales. In the Norman period it consisted of a single large room partly surrounded by niches built over a vast undercroft. In the second quarter of the thirteenth century, the first floor was dramatically converted into a more conventional great hall and chamber, through the insertion of new windows and the construction of a pair of sumptuously decorated arches across the building in the most refined Early English style.

History of Chepstow Castle. The first castle at Chepstow was erected in 1067 by William fitz Osbern, a Norman follower of William the Conqueror  . Today it is in the care of Cadw, Welsh Heritage. Almost immediately beside the castle site is Chepstow Museum, housed in an elegant late 18th-century house, and a short walk away is Chepstow Priory, a wonderful early medieval church.
