Chepstow Museum Overlooking the Wye Works completed

Works completed:
• Creation of a ‘Wye Tour’ room where visitors can experience a ‘virtual’ tour down the River Wye.  There are references to Piercefield: the family, the house and the walks because of the links between the two and the importance of the Piercefield viewpoints as a stopping off point en route to Chepstow. 
• Restoration of a stopnet fishing boat which was used in the stop net fishery on the River Wye at Chepstow.  This ceased to operate in 1985 and is believed to be the oldest of these craft, built around one hundred years ago.
• Interactive displays which help to tell the story of the Wye Tour, its people and their lives within the Wye Valley.
