Tintern Abbey, Tintern, Monmouthshire 17 July 2015
Ignore this sign at your peril, otherwise you may fall into the abbey's sewer! This drainage system was considered one of the most advanced of its time, leading through the kitchen, toilets and beyond, originally into the Wye. It was this channelling to the Wye which caused the abbey to be offset from the normal alignment of religious buildings.
