Tintern Abbey

The Cistercian abbey of Tintern is one of the greatest monastic ruins in Wales, originally founded in 1131 by Walter de Clare and added to and updated in every century until its dissolution in 1536. Thankfully for its preservation, its history was relatively uneventful and it suffered little in the Welsh uprisings of the medieval period.

The Severn Bore

Bore is the rather curious name given to a unique tidal phenomenon. An exceptionally high tide produces a wave so large that it travels upstream within the banks of the nearest river, sometimes for several miles. Favourable conditions for a really big Bore, such as a strong following wind, can produce a wave on the Severn river over two metres high, moving at an average speed of 16 kilometres per hour. The waves attract hundreds of spectators and more excitingly, the daring and intrepid Bore Riders.
