History of Moon Viewing at Tintern

This isn’t the first time the moon has drawn visitors to the Abbey from far and wide. After the Wye Valley railway opened in 1876 Tintern Abbey became a very fashionable destination, especially to see the harvest moon, rising through the Abbey’s rose window. It was a spectacle that attracted thousands of visitors in the 1880s.
