Inscription: TINTERN ABBEY - IMPRESS WITH QUIETNESS & BEAUTY
Tintern Abbey was founded in 1131 by Cistercian monks who were happy to make do with a timber building. A simple stone church came later but from 1269 a new church was built which became one of the masterpieces of British Gothic architecture. The dissolution of the monasteries in 1536 saw it decline into the majestic ruin we see today. The phrase impress with quietness and beauty is from
the poem Lines Written a Few Miles above Tintern Abbey by William Wordsworth.

Imperfect Tiles (1 available)
Imperfect tiles are slightly below the high standards of our perfect tiles. These tiles are a great
way to add to your collection and saves £6 per tile against the price of perfect tiles.
An imperfect tile will have a small defect of some kind, such as a crack or surface blemish.
A crack will not be easy to spot from the front but is likely to be more obvious from the back.
You are welcome to contact us before purchasing an imperfect tile to ask about the defects.
