Tintern Abbey from Offa's Dyke
Date: 
Thursday 9th August 2018 10am - 1pm
Meeting Point: 
The Wireworks Car Park in Tintern (Forge Road, NP16 6TQ).

Miro will be leading this delightful circular walk which follows part of the Offa's Dyke National Trail and inspired one of William Wordsworth's most famous poems. 

It starts at the Wireworks car park in Tintern (whose fascinating history you can read on various notice boards), crosses the Wireworks bridge and heads back along the river path opposite the Abbey before climbing up towards the Offa's Dyke path.  Although this is a long uphill section it is on a good track and enables you to get high enough to reach the magnificent viewpoint and cluster of stones called the 'Devil's Pulpit' (the setting for Wordsworth's poem).  The walk continues along the Offa's Dyke trail, winding through the woods and descending to Brockweir before returning along the river path to Tintern.  It is roughly 6 miles long.

Please bring water and snacks.  There are plenty of places for food and drink in Tintern if you would like something before heading back to Bristol. You could even stay a bit longer and take a look round Tintern Abbey itself.  The whole area has a fascinating history and is well worth visiting - click here to read more.
