A Walk Around Tintern

We ventured the 8km (5 mile) walk around Tintern. It was a mild afternoon, with fairly constant light drizzle. The walk began with steep slopes, over fields, and meeting and crossing (on many occasions) the Offa’s Dyke path.

The first leg of the walk took us up through wonderful meadows.

 

Further along, you get a glimpse of old lime kilns.

Around half-way, you stop at the Devil’s Pulpit – with amazing views of the Wye valley, and the village of Tintern, not to mention the spectacular abbey.

 

On the ‘climb’ back down to the river, you pass many old trees…
