Coleridge and his party spent so long delighting in Piercefield on their walk to Tintern that night fell and they were temporarily lost. Discover their dilemma and how they got to Tintern in the end… We will follow in their footsteps – not in the dark!
The walk includes some rough ground, including going down quite a stony path, so please wear appropriate footwear, walking boots or shoes. We will read the account of the walk as recalled by Joseph Cottle, Coleridge and Southey’s friend and publisher in his reminiscences. Just over 3 miles, approximately 2 – 2.5 hours.
- meet at Tintern Abbey Car Park assemble outside the modern entrance to the Abbey
- We will then take a minibus to upper Wyndcliffe Car Park, and follow the route that Coleridge and his party took (but not getting lost and caught by nightfall!) We would appreciate a small donation towards the cost of the minibus eg £2
- Please ring Chepstow Museum 01291 625981 to book so that we know you are coming
Having arrived back at Tintern we hope you will stay for the evenings events:
