  • A beautiful and historic building with an ongoing place in the community as a place of worship. The masonry work is quite outstanding. The Windows are mesmerising. Notice the ceiling - It too contains many surprise carvings. Ramped access is available.
  • Very beautiful and very friendly. Wheelchair access is via the entrance in the South wall of the Abbey, towards the east end.
