  • Another wonderful example of monastic influence in Somerset. The English Hertiage employee was very knowledgeable and taught us a lot about the Norman influence on monasticism in England. Thank you!
  • A lot more to explore than expected. Amazing 13th century tiles relaid in the nearby church. Check out the monks loos.
  • Although there were not many building left standing an effort had been made to show the life & conditions of a large mediaeval abbey before evil Henry VIII sold off the building & land to anyone who would pay for them. Even better was the English Heritage official who answered all my questions explaining the background to the"problems " of the Somerset levels & the abbey as well as a much wider discussion about our ancestry & linguistics. Great fun on a dull day.
  • A good look at how the Abbott lived with his monks . Nice staff and a warm welcome. Some good interactive displays.
  • Off the beaten track to learn more about the life of monk, and how about the only complete thatched monks' lavatory in England.
