Item Description: 

Chepstow Castle was the final great spectacle of the Wye Tour. The crumbling walls, juxtaposed with luxuriant plant life, ensured both an evocation of picturesque decay (for the pre-"Lines" viewer) and a subtle reminder of human mortality and the passage of time (for the post-"Lines" viewer).
