ST5399 : Curiosity at Tintern Abbey

taken 10 years ago, near to Chapel Hill, Monmouthshire/Sir Fynwy, Great Britain

Curiosity at Tintern Abbey
Curiosity at Tintern Abbey
The wall of Tintern Abbey can be glimpsed above and beyond the stone wall.
Presumably, someone, somewhere, knows exactly what this curiosity is! The split stone tablet has an illegible inscription - the only clear words are "The..." and "To...". Why is it split? What was the function of the hole? Why has it been protected by the stone arch? Does it have an historical significance? Why is there not some explanation attached?
