  • Historical, well kept, lovely town and right by Grand Union canal.
  • Great place to explore some past history in the outside!!
  • Not a great deal left but after all it is a ruin and still we'll worth a visit, there's a huge grassed area for picnics on a warm day and plenty of room for the kids to play, the only down side is you'll struggle for parking.
  • I wouldn't travel here just to see it, but it's well maintained for what it is (ruins).
  • Love a bit of history
