Sitting on the edge of the river Wye, the town of Chepstow is dominated by its castle. It is one of the most picturesque market towns on the Welsh borders. England sits across the Chepstow bridge, but the settlement of Tutshill lacks a pub. As Christmas approaches a fog descends on Chepstow, and the town takes on an etheral air. It seems easier to capture the spirit of the town in darkness. I savour these winter days, for soon it will be spring, and the long days will be with us.
