Chepstow East railway station was a station on the South Wales Railway (now the Gloucester to Newport Line). It was about a mile east of Chepstow railway station, at the road bridge close to the future junction of the Wye Valley line[1] (which opened in November 1876).[2] It was opened on 19 September 1851 and served as a temporary station while the Chepstow railway bridge was being constructed across the river to link up with the rest of the line. It closed on 19 July 1852, the day that the bridge over the Wye was opened.[3][4]

Another station, Tutshill for Beachley Halt was opened in 1934 at a close location.
