The Hidden History in These Walls 3
OPW personnel and local geologist, Bill Sheppard, will weave together the human and geological heritage of the Tintern area and Abbey. Did the building stone used change through time and where was it sourced. How did geological history evolve and impact on human history. The walk will examine some outcropping rock and discuss the landscape of the area. Similar Heritage Week events are planned at Ballyhack and Dunbrody. Good footwear is required.
