Tintern Abbey and Chepstow Castle in South Wales











Tintern Abbey

This Cistercian abbey buil in 1100 is still remarkably preserved.
Low remains in forefront are the infirmary and its kitchen.










Chepstow Castle



 We first came to Chepstow Castle 20 yrs ago. It was as impressive then as it is  now still.  It is perched on a hill above the winding Wye River and the town of Chepstow. First built by the Normans in 1066, it has been altered, changed and added to over the centuries.  I took these pictures with my new camera. I am still working out how to use it, but there are some nice shots. Enjoy!
