I really need some help. Please could you post this message, it's very important, and it's not a hoax. I want to know if anyone has seen anything strange on the A466, going into Tintern.
Particularly just past Redbrook. I'm not going to give any details of what I saw, I have to prevent people who are just joking around.

My email address is: emmamarriott33@hotmail.com

Also if you have any information on the road or the area. I am especially interested in a crash which I know happened in the last few years along that road. I know it was a mystery but have no other information. I am particuarly interested in the colour and make of the car, and the direction it was going in. If there is any idea on why it came off the road. If not it would be useful to be directed to somewhere which would have a record on this kind of thing.

Thank you very much
From Emma-Rose Marriott

Hello John.

I have recently visited your Web Site on Tintern, which I must say I found very pleasing and informative.
My name is Derek Williams and I was born and lived in Tintern until joining the Army at the age of 18, and I have many memories of my village of that era and I still have friends and some relatives living there.
My pals and I were always into some kind of trouble with the law etc! We very often climbed up to the top walls of the Abbey (did you know the walls are 4 or 5 feet wide?), also I never knew why the underground tunnels in the Abbey infirmary went down to the river!! Ah well.

In the 1950s my family and I lived at "Sylvan View" for eight years before eventually emigrating to New Zealand in 1967, living in Chistchurch for 19 years.
Our small country of Waihi is part of the Coromandel Peninsula near the top of the North Island and is built around an opencast, very active, Gold Mine that produces more than a Million Dollars of Gold and Silver each week. I offer you a Web Site of our pleasant town, www.hawaihi-nz.com

I hope you will be able to find time to consider a brief reply, and as I seem to have mislaid your Site Address,maybe you would kindly send that, thanks.

My very best to you
Derek R Williams
