View of Tintern Abbey. Founded in 1131 by Water de Clare, Tintern was to become the wealthiest Abbey in Wales, owning many estates. The monastic buildings were not finished until the 1340s. After the house was dissolved in the 16th century, the abbey fell into disrepair and gradually became the romantic ruin so admired by eighteenth century travellers. The west door opened up to the most admired interior view of the Abbey.
