    Runston Chapel

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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.

    Wheres the roof??

    Drive out of Chepstow on the A466 towards Monmouth and the road follows the River Wye through some pretty villages,including Tintern.Home of this Abbey,over 700 years old,and worth a visit.About 15 minutes from Chepstow on the right.
    It coats about £7 for a family ticket,its got the uaual facilities,ie toilets shops etc.s

    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.
    You can get some smashing photos from there,unfortunatels the weather wasnt so good when I took this photo.
