    Now reduced to a ruin, though large with lots to see. Deserves a bit of restoration and care more, even at the cost of no longer, because the property is worth and it would be nice to see her recovering its old world charm and historic.

  • Although a ruin, large parts of the buildings remain and give a good overall impression of how the Abbey looked in previous times. There are large expanses of well tended grass too, and it is a popular place for picnics and is fairly peaceful. Entrance is free, and step free, but gravel paths might make it difficult for wheel chair users. Restoration work is ongoing and certain areas are closed or restricted because of this (2017). Parking is a bit limited on the road outside and access from Neath is under a 7'9" low bridge. Alternative access is via the main bypass and through an industrial estate. Well worth a visit.
  • A fascinating site that illustrates many important episodes in the history of south Wales from the time of the Normans to the Industrial Revolution.
  • Interesting ruins covering a large area.
  • Lovely place to visit. Great for family day out.
  • 12th century monastic ruins. More info on cadw website or elsewhere online.
