  • Amazing hidden spot! So beautiful and peaceful. And to research the history after visiting was very interesting!!
  • Wander down the muddy track , where upon you will come across a tree covered in ribbons and the like , where people have left their offerings. .... Keep on down the track and you will soon stumble across the ruins of the chapel that lays here beneath a old Yew tree... A real gem of a place, I will go back maybe with my own piece of ribbon......
