Tintern Abbey, a Cistercian abbey, was founded c. 1200 by William, the Earl Marshall, and named after Tintern in Wales. The remains consist of nave, chancel, tower, chapel and cloister. It was partly converted into living quarters after 1541, and further adapted over the centuries. The Abbey was occupied by the Colclough family from the 16th century until 1960s.
The abbey is set in a special area of conservation and is surrounded by woodland within which are walking trails to be enjoyed.
