Out and about…

Bridge to St Brigid

April 2nd 2024

Offered as part of Chepstow Walking Festival Explore the origins of St. Brigid/Bride/Ffraid and her connections with the Welsh coastline. Departing from one water crossing icon to discover the origins of another, this walk in the company of Gwent storyteller Christine Watkins and the Newport Transporter Bridge project team, will uncover traditional pagan, Christian and folk stories of a saint who has such strong associations with our rivers and coasts.
We will walk from the iconic Transporter Bridge to the seawall, then west to Llansanffraid Gwynllwg /St Bride’s Wentlooge where refreshments await us – closing with a traditional candle-lighting ceremony before returning by minibus to the Bridge.
