Support Needed for Railway Path Application

Exciting new proposals for a traffic-free path between Chepstow, Tintern and Brockweir for walkers, cyclists and people with disabilities following the disused Wye Valley railway have been submitted to Monmouthshire County and Forest of Dean District Councils for planning approval.

The proposed route from the National Diving and Activity Centre in Tidenham will pass through two old railway tunnels and cross the river Wye near Tintern via a new lightweight bridge at the site of a former railway river crossing.

The Sustrans Railway path will provide a safe, healthy and environmentally sustainable alternative for linking the communities of the lower Wye Valley.

For further information visit

Support the Sustrans Railway path TODAY with emails to quoting reference P1597/07/FUL quoting reference DC/2008/00367

The A466 through Tintern is now reopen.

Thanks to Steve Pocock of the Cherry Tree Inn for this photo of the Angidy when it came close to flooding in the recent heavy rain. The water level is usually a good two feet less than this! Fortunatelty the water has quickly subsided and things are now back to normal.

Another Landslide.


The A466 is currently closed in the village by another landslide.

Tintern Post Office to Close?

Following a "Government Initiative" in 2006, the Post Office is now implemetnting what is euphemistically called a "Network Change" programme.

What this actually means is the closure of smaller Post Office branches.

Tintern is one of the branches proposed for permanent closure.

There is a period of "public consultation" from now until the 25th February 2008. Please make your feelings known by writing to:

Steve Geraty
Network Development Manager
Post Office Ltd©

You might also wish to express your views to our local MP:

David Davies MP
The Grange

and to our local councillor Ann Webb:

In addition to this, Monmouthshire Council are taking legal action against the Cherry Tree Inn, Post Office and Stores for displaying a wooden direction board at the bottom of the Angiddy Valley road.

Without any form of signpost, visitors will have great difficulty locating our village shop and stores, not to mention an excellent local pub.

It is as if Monmouthshire are deliberately setting out to kill off the vital facilities that are so valuable to local people.
