History trip to Tintern Abbey and Chepstow Castle

On Tuesday, 27 July, the First Form went on a History trip to Tintern Abbey and Chepstow Castle.

I was really excited to see the Abbey and Castle ahead. We explored Tintern Abbey and learnt about the stunning Abbey for the first half of the day; that was great fun and I loved every moment of it. Next, we went to Chepstow Castle and we went through every single nook and cranny, topping up our knowledge about the hidden wonders of this amazing Castle.

Tintern Abbey is a ruin of an old monastery that once housed many people in their religious state of life. Chepstow Castle is Britain’s oldest Norman castle, that was subsequently developed many times over many centuries. Overall, I loved this trip and I think it is worthy of being done again for many years to come in the First Form.
