The November Ale Amble heads across the Severn to the border town of Chepstow.
We shall be getting the 10.45 train arriving at 11.26. . If you are coming from another area then we shall meet you in the Bell Hanger, (Wetherspoons), 9â€“10 St Mary Street (not far from the station). Our train arrives at 11.26 so we shall see you shortly after that. Norman from Cardiff/Bristol has just been to Chepstow and has kindly offered to guide us. I am aware that the micro pub (Queen’s Head) doesn’t open until 5 pm – however on prior notice we *MAY* be able to get it to open earlier. The train back will be 18.46 or 19.17 – I leave it to you.
