We were standing on the banks of the Severn, not far from Shepperdine and Nupdown. We were looking down stream, on the left of the picture towards the Bristol Channel. It’s too misty to see but on the horizon are the two Severn bridges, the suspension bridge built in 1966 and now Grade 1 listed (meaning it is of architectural and historic value) and a cable-stayed bridge built in 1996. The land across the water is Monmouthshire and Gloucestershire, where Wales and England meet. The building on the left of the picture is a boarded up pub with ‘sold’ signs plastered across it, which was called the Windbound. Windbound is a ship which can’t move because of the direction of the wind, so I suppose the pub was ‘windbound’ because it didn’t move, but I’m not sure it was a very positive name for it!
