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.
