  • Remains of 13th century cistercian abbey. Its a beautiful and peaceful location with clear signs explaining what you are seeing and what life would have been like for those living there. Interesting little museum on site with more information and artifacts.
  • Sadly much of this fine abbey has either fallen down or was destroyed during the dissolution of the monastries and the period following. The atmosphere of this tranquil part of the Cotswolds is still very much in evidence. The newly opened museum helps you understand how the place was built and developed into an important Cistercian site.
  • Very peaceful ruins, pretty much the perfect picnic spot
  • Easier to get to now there is the new Halt on the GWR Steam Railway.
  • If you are interested in history & can use your imagination this is a good place to be. Beautiful setting & very tranquil.
