Tintern Abbey added to Places of Worship in Wales by clinkadink on 03/01/2022

TOAL was from the bank of the Wye River, behind the Abbey's carpark.

Tintern Abbey is a national icon - still standing in roofless splendour on the banks of the River Wye nearly 500 years since its tragic fall from grace.

It was founded in 1131 by Cistercian monks, who were happy to make do with timber buildings at first. Abbot Henry, a reformed robber, was better known for his habit of crying at the altar than for his architectural ambitions.

A simple stone church and cloisters came later. But then, thanks to the patronage of wealthy Marcher lords, the white-robed monks began to think bigger.

In 1269 they began to build a new abbey church and didn’t stop until they’d created one of the masterpieces of British Gothic architecture. The great west front with its seven-lancet window and the soaring arches of the nave still take the breath away.

So grateful were the monks to their powerful patron Roger Bigod that they were still handing out alms on his behalf in 1535. But by then King Henry VIII’s English Reformation was well underway.

Only a year later Tintern surrendered in the first round of the dissolution of the monasteries - and the great abbey began slowly to turn into a majestic ruin.

At the point marked is a gateway to keep off the roadway for TOAL.
I would imagine parking nearer to the event area may cause some concern from security on site during festival season.

Belmont Common (By jordans)

Belmont Common-

Good VLOS to the north with very little to interfere with flight.
A spot I use to practice low level manoeuvres when upper winds are too high as trees from 3 sides give good cover.
Footpaths through woods look good for FPV (if I were brave enough)
Very unlikely to bump into members of public

Warnings:
TNL FRZ 0.5 miles to the south
Close to road (quiet road)
Phone line nearby
Trees up to 50ft around 3 sides

Corfe Castle (By LordParker)

Corfe Castle is a fortification standing above the village of the same name on the Isle of Purbeck peninsula in the English county of Dorset. Built by William the Conqueror, the castle dates to the 11th century and commands a gap in the Purbeck Hills on the route between Wareham and Swanage. The first phase was one of the earliest castles in England to be built at least partly using stone when the majority were built with earth and timber. Corfe Castle underwent major structural changes in the 12th and 13th centuries.


In 1572, Corfe Castle left the Crown's control when Elizabeth I sold it to Sir Christopher Hatton. Sir John Bankes bought the castle in 1635, and was the owner during the English Civil War. His wife, Lady Mary Bankes, led the defence of the castle when it was twice besieged by Parliamentarian forces. The first siege, in 1643, was unsuccessful, but by 1645 Corfe was one of the last remaining royalist strongholds in southern England and fell to a siege ending in an assault. In March that year Corfe Castle was slighted on Parliament's orders. Owned by the National Trust, the castle is open to the public and in 2018 received around 237,000 visitors.
