Tintern Abbey

Tintern Abbey, Monmouthshire.

Tintern Abbey dates back to 1131 and lies next to the River Wye in Monmouthshire, South Wales.

Over its life time it has been extended to meet the changing requirements of the monks that lived and worshipped there. The tallest remains are that of the Abbey Church, with the rest of the complex well represented by lower walls and foundations giving an idea of the area that this Abbey occupied.
