Caption: By the 18th century, Tintern Abbey had become a tourist attraction for so-called 'Romantic' tourists including William Wordsworth. By the early 20th century, the abbey was recognised as a monument of national importance and was purchased by the Crown for £15,000 in 1901. Initial conservation of the structure and its environs was completed by 1928.
