Chepstow Castle Pamphlet Guide (Welsh)
£1.95

Shortly after the battle of Hastings in 1066, King William I — William Conqueror — had gained control over England. The new king was generous with his gifts to his loyal friends and supporters. He bequeathed his best friend, William fitz Osbern, with an earldom and gave him extensive lands around Hereford. The king asked him to fight the warrior Welsh and build castles to protect the southern part of the Marches - the areas of the border between the land of the Welsh princes and English Normans.

 

Chepstow Castle was the most southerly of fitz Osbern's castles. It stands on a high limestone cliff and was fitz Osbern's first foothold in Wales. It protected the bridge and the port and had control of traffic the River Wye. When fitz Osbern died in 1071, his son revolted against the king and his estates were forfeited to the Crown. It is now believed that it was King William himself who built the great tower at the centre of the castle, around that time.
