The parish of Chapel Hill lies in the Wye Valley in Monmouthshire, Wales. The village was amalgamated with Tintern Parva in 1902 forming the settlement of Tintern.
The village is popular with tourists due to its associations with the ruins of Tintern Abbey, the beautiful scenery and the two National Trails that pass by the village.
Tintern Abbey was originally founded by Cistercian monks in 1131 AD, in the reign of Henry I. Between 1270 and 1301 the Abbey was rebuilt but sadly was ruined following the reformation. The ruins of Tintern Abbey are a remarkable structure and are now in the care of Cadw, Welsh Historic Monuments.
Within Chapel Hill itself are the remains of St Mary's church, slowly being engulfed by ivy. The church is medieval in origin, but was virtually rebuilt by the Victorians only to be destroyed by fire in 1977. It comprises a roofless nave and chancel with no division, a partly roofed tower with porch under and a vestry with burial vault below.
