Tintern to Brockweir

19th July 2021                                Map of route

On a very hot day, we parked at Tintern Old Station by the River Wye, where old railway carriages host a shop and tourist information and the waiting room is now a cafe.


We walked along the old railway track to the bridge over the river and crossed to Brockweir in Gloucestershire

Tintern to Offa’s Dyke

31st July 2020                                Map of walk

On a very hot day, we parked by Tintern Abbey

and walked past a Welsh Dragon

Crossing the River Wye on the former railway, but now footway, bridge


First we walked to Brockweir, then uphill onto the Offa’s Dyke Path.

Walking south we reached this view point called the Devil’s Pulpit, overlooking Tintern Abbey – that is the bridge we walked over

We are nearly back at the Abbey – but it is on the othe side of the river

It was good to be walking under the trees most of the time, as it was one of the hottest days of the year.
