Starting Point

Tintern Abbey

Description

We gather at historic Tintern Abbey before setting out in a spirit of pilgrimage to explore this lovely part of the Wye Valley immortalised by Wordsworth in his 'Lines Composed a Few Miles above Tintern Abbey.' The poem shows the importance of nature to Christianity in the Romantic movement of the early nineteenth century.

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 admire some wonderful views only seen at this time of year, when the trees have shed their leaves. The Walk at six miles is of medium length with moderate terrain involving some rocky sections which can be slippy underfoot if it's wet.

Bring a packed lunch. We will end the day back at Tintern with Hot Chocolate, or a mug of steaming coffee or tea!
