Details

2.5 mile walk from the Old Station, Tintern enjoying both sides of the River Wye.

This is a relatively easy walk in the beautiful Wye Valley with a short steep uphill section and a short downhill section which is rough under foot. Download the PDF below for full details.

Tintern was one of four stations on the Wye Valley Railway Line, which opened in 1876. It was a large station, with three platforms. The line closed to passengers in 1959 and to freight in 1964.

Brockweir is named after Brockmael, a dark ages prince of Gwent. Located at the highest point of the tide, it could accommodate sea-going ships and it became an important port for the export of produce from Herefordshire and the Forest of Dean. It was also a centre for ship building. In the 19th century there were 16 public houses and the town had a reputation for lawlessness.

Brockweir Moravian Church was built in the 1830s. It was the first of a number of nonconformist churches built in the town.
