Just off the A48 at Crick (aprox 4 miles West of Chepstow you can find The Ivy covered ruins of Runston Chapel standing in a cleared space that could once have been a cemetery, although there are no sign of any graves now. It is a small Norman Chapel that consists of a nave and a chancel, the arch of the chancel remains in good condition.

Just before Tintern Abbey (about 2miles)on your right theres a picnic area thats idyllic,really peaceful,lots of picnic tables,not many bins so take a bag for your rubbish.
