Wintour's Leap is named after Royalist Sir John Wintour who, hotly pursued on his horse by Parliamentary forces, according to local myth survived a leap off the cliff and, landing safely in the Wye below, swam to his safety in the nearby Chepstow Castle. In fact, Wintour did escape from the Roundheads by using the river nearby on two separate occasions, but from less spectacular positions at Lancaut and Sedbury.[1]

Sir John Wintour was a second son and so descendants from his line along the Waite family traditionally name their second sons with the middle name 'Wintour', although the name has been given to female descendants also.
This picture was taken from a disused quarry with breathtaking views, climbers on the cliffs with sheer drops dice with death, peregrine falcons nest here also, fearless photographers edge their way carefully to within 10 metres of the edge and breathless walkers pass by wondering at our stupidity in being there for mere pictures.
