The Sunday Telegraph - Travel - - Cover Story - Tin­tern Abbey & Devil’s Pul­pit, Mon­mouthshire (3 Miles)

Tin­tern’s 12th­cen­tury Cis­ter­cian abbey fell into ruin af­ter the Dis­so­lu­tion of the Monas­ter­ies and has been mythol­o­gised by po­ets and pain­ters (most fa­mously Wordsworth and Turner) ever since. On a crisp win­ter’s morn­ing with frost on the ground and mist over the River Wye, it’s a rev­e­la­tion. Fol­low signs to Offa’s Dyke Path and the Devil’s Pul­pit, a lime­stone out­crop that pro­vides panoramic views over the river from the op­po­site side of the val­ley.
