Across the remains of the Inner Court towards Tintern Abbey
Across the remains of the Inner Court towards Tintern Abbey
Viewed from the A466. Mist around the Abbey and River Wye lingers on a January morning.
A nearby information board states that the medieval Cistercian precinct in this area extended for 27 acres (11 ha) enclosed by a high wall, parts of which survive on the hillside above the main road.
The foundations seen here are of buildings of the inner court, which was probably a communal guest hall. In the later Middle Ages, part of this inner court area was used for industrial metal working.
