The second Cistercian abbey in Britain and the first in Wales was founded by the Lord of Chepstow, Walter de Clare. The buildings were constructed on the Welsh side of the Wye River that forms part of the border between England and Wales.
A Cistercian abbey was founded by monks from Tintern Abbey. The location of the abbey altered several times in the first few years, but finally settled at Kingswood in Gloucestershire. A sixteenth-century gatehouse is all that remains.
The Gloucestershire abbey was moved back to Kingswood and populated by monks from Tintern.
