In a country setting. Lovely site; interesting little museum & shop - so much history. Fascinating! Very nr. to where I live and such a nice place to take visitors.

Left derelict after the reformation, the plan of the old Abbey is still cleary visible. Must have been amazing when it was occupied, it is still impressive and very calming.
love this place well signposted and a pleasure too look round telling you the history of the abbey and what happened to it in henry 8ths time well worth a visit even better when there are re eactors are there to give it some colour
