The Abbey was founded in 1131 by Cistercian monks. Henry VIII destroyed it in the dissolution of the monasteries. Britains first brass was produced at Tintern. The valley and villages of Brockweir and Llandogo feature in the Netflix series Sex Education.

Cave
“A popular venue to travel 600 feet underground on a tour through an iron ore mine that was started by the Romans. In WW2 over 12,000 tons of ore a week was shipped by rail to Newport to be smelted as part of the war effort. At Christmas time, the mine is transformed into one huge Santas Grotto and is a real treat for children.”
