Chepstow Park

Introduction

There is a park boundary wall of local comglomorate stone of varying sizes. There are probably six medieval entrance points. The circular earthwork near the centre of the park is believed to be the remains of the park lodge, and a platform structure exactly one mile to the east of it is interpreted as evidence for a deer course probably established in the 1630s. It is now managed for commercial forestry.

Visitor Facilities

There are no facilities, but Forestry Commission land is normally accessible to the public. Various tracks run through the park from the several ancient and modern entrances through the degraded wall.
