In 1976 Elizabeth McRae went missing from Coombesbury Woods in the Northern area of what is now the National Diving & Activity Centre.
Elizabeth was a rare dog breeder from London who was to marry a local Lord.
Her vanity had led her to use Tintern Abbey as the wedding venue, with the reception taking place at a clearing in Coombesbury Woods. The spectacular reception was to be held in a gigantic Big Top tent, holding 400 people and featuring a travelling Circus.
However on the day of the wedding things didn’t go to plan when the Lord’s family discovered she was already with child outside of wedlock. Continue reading “Bride Missing in Chepstow Woods”
Here’s the 80’s Horror Movie inspired teaser trailer for the 2017 FearFest-Evil Halloween Horror Event!
Go full screen, turn up the sound and bask in the 80’s horror of ‘Chop-Chop’ the Butcher of Tidenham!
We don’t know his real name, but the giant of the man known as ‘Chop-Chop’ was believed to have died at the quarry site in 1959.
The Chepstow Butcher carved and served meat for many years in the Dayhouse Quarry kitchen and earned his nickname from his ability with a butchers knife.
From speaking to old timers who worked at the quarry near Chepstow, the tale is that he went missing after being implicated in the disappearance of a local girl. There were also rumours that the butcher may have been responsible for several other disappearances near the site and the surrounding area of Chepstow.
The story of Chop Chop’s death is vague and a body was never found. However, local Chepstow legend says his fellow co-workers took the law into their own hands and threw the Butcher of Tidenham off the cliff edge.
