Tintern Abbey, Monmouthshire, Wales


This is a photo of the Tintern Abbey (Abaty Tyndyrn in Welsh), which was founded by Walter de Clare, Lord of Chepstow, in 1131. Situated on the River Wye in Monmouthshire, it was only the second Cistercian foundation in Britain, and the first in Wales. It is one of the most spectacular ruins in the country.
