  • 2 adults and 2 children out of the Abbey will visit it. Interesting about the photography exhibition, with old cameras and explanations about the history of photography. The Museum is not very large. Recommended.

  • Old historic buildings.
  • Typical National Trust - excellent, and they seem to have taken over the whole village :). Really good day out for anyone.
