The historic Old Wye Bridge, also known as Chepstow Bridge
This bridge dates from 1816. The Visit Monmouthshire website says of it: "Chepstow Bridge is the World's largest iron arch road bridge from the first 50 years (1780-1830) of iron and steel construction. Of the ten largest iron arch road bridges built in the world before 1830, only Chepstow remains."
Half way across the bridge you reach England. See ST5394 : Chepstow Bridge - with a national boundary
