THE WYE VALLEY
A few pictures from our recent trip.
1/ Showing the Wharf where boats coming from the Bristol Channel unloaded their cargo. It was reloaded onto smaller boats which took it further upstream.
2/ The village of Underhill where we stayed, showing cottages and the road bridge crossing the river from where the picture of the wharf was taken.
3/ Tintern Abbey built by Cistercian distinctively white-robed monks in the 12th century.
4/ Another view of the Abbey. Same day, same time of day, but quite a different feel. More romantic; more dramatic.
5/ This is one of the cottages in the Village looking at least as old as the Abbey.
