#TinternAbbey

MOST RECENT

On the banks of this delightful stream
We stood together; and that I, so long
A worshipper of Nature, hither came
Unwearied in that service: rather say
With warmer love - oh! With far deeper zeal
Of holier love. Nor wilt thou then forget,
That after many wanderings, many years
Of absence, these steep woods and lofty cliffs,
And this green pastoral landscape, were to me
More dear, both for themselves and for thy sake!
- William Wordsworth

A lady sitting pensively in the magnificent structure of Tintern Abbey as she had her lunch. #breathtaking #tinternabbey #wales #tintern

We went to visit some of @sybil_heinz_becroft’s family near the Forest of Dean and managed to fit in a little stop off at #tinternabbey. And enough time to have a go at some #longexposure shots.

When I'm not paddling, I wander around and look at old stuff.
The construction of Tintern Abbey started in 1011AD and was finished nearly 200 years later. When Vikings sailed up the River Wye in 1066, they chose to not attack and instead passed by peacefully. The abbey was operated by the White Monks (they wore undyed wool) for over 525 years until it was torn apart during the Dissolution in 1536. These pictures don't show the true magnitude and size of this incredible structure. .
