Fabulous Friday & Skywatch Friday:Chepstow Castle

I have been sick this week with my first bout of laryngitis & a chest infection in almost 6 years!! So, I haven't been out with my camera. As I have already done a couple of Christmas posts, I decided to do something entirely different.

What I love to do when I am house bound is go through old photos. Well, these aren't too old. They are from my around the world trip in September/October 2010 (USA, UK & Europe).

Built in 1067, Chepstow Castle is a Norman castle perched high above the banks of the river Wye in southeast Wales. Built for William the Conqueror by William FitzOsbern, Earl of Hereford. Chepstow Castle is the oldest surviving stone castle in Britain.











Thanks for stopping by & do have a wonderful Christmas weekend!

It was a great day out and we saw so many wonderful sights including Tintern Abbey. But Chepstow will always remain a favourite.

Love your pictures!!
Wish I could see and explore the old castle by myself.

Christmas waves a magic wand over this world,
and behold, everything is softer and more beautiful.
Wish you a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
