  • All the information plaques are great, really help when trying to visualize how magnificent the Abbey would of been if untouched.
  • A lovely park with a huge amount of history. Lots of play equipment and of course ruins.
  • The abbey grounds and ruins are open to the public. Great recreational space with fantastic history built right into the landscape.
