Tintern Abbey and the Wye Valley


Saturday 1st April 2017


11.00 a.m.


4.00 p.m.

Starting Point

Tintern Abbey


When do people long to go on pilgrimage? In April says Geoffrey Chaucer in The Canterbury Tales.

With spring in the air, we gather at historic Tintern Abbey before setting out in a spirit of pilgrimage to explore this lovely part of the Wye Valley. Along the way, we'll walk part of Offa's Dyke, discover Brockweir village with its whitewashed´╗┐ Moravian Chapel ´╗┐on the banks of the river and walk up into the green pastures beyond.

The Walk at seven miles is of medium length with moderate terrain involving some rocky section which can be slippy underfoot if it's wet. Bring a packed lunch. We will end the day back at Tintern with a cup of tea or coffee at one of the lovely tea rooms close to the Abbey.
