Tintern abbey is situated in a steeply wooded valley/gorge alongside the river Wye. The Abbey - under the care of CADW ( welsh version of English Heritage) is derelict with only a small part of the building having a roof.

Corfe castle is best visited out of season as it is very much on the tourist trail, the path up to and through the castle is steep in places but requires no special footwear. Corfe castle is owned by the National Trust and charges a small fee - members go free.
Dunston Staiths on the River Tyne is considered to be the largest wooden structure in Europe. It used to be used to transfer coal by rail from the Durham coalfields and loaded from the Staiths onto ships waiting on the river.

A fifteen minute walk along the River Severn brings you to a run down structure resembling an old goods carriage on the flood defences. I call it a fisherman's hut only because I can't think what else it could be used for.
