History

The village of Chain Bridge is on the River Usk. The design and construction of this interesting steel bowstring arch bridge (by John Webster, built in 1906), was the subject of an article in 'The Engineer' in 1907. Here two drinkers enjoy an outdoor tipple, gazing at the water and the chain bridge in this idyll of a rural scene.
