Tintern Abbey, Wales

I posted some pictures of Llantrithyd Place ruins recently and pegasus2o5 said it reminded them of Tintern Abbey.

I live close to there too but I only had grey wintery photos of it. The weather has been better recently I went back yesterday to take some brighter pictures for you - and let's be honest my camera needs all the help it can get! I am sorry these photos don't half measure up to the spectacular photography we all are used to seeing in this community but I hope you can get a sense of the majestic beauty of this place. Maybe someone else nearby could get some better pictures or those who haven't seen it.

Also - you can read online the famous Wordworth blank verse poem with the lengthly name "Lines Composed a Few Miles above Tintern Abbey, on Revisiting the Banks of the Wye during a Tour. July 13, 1798."

A really small trailer that I found one day while exploring. It's super easy to get there, pretty much a walkup. The only thing to worry about is the houses next door that are certainly not abandoned. Not much in there, I think at some point they might have been trying to fix it up.
