An ancient abbey built over 600 years ago. It was extensively fire damaged about 8 years ago and has been rebuilt recently. Some nice stained glass windows and an exhibition of the history of the abbey and area. Large grave yard outside the abbey with many of the graves in good condition so if any of your relatives were buried there, there is a good chance that the gravestone may be readable.
A rather plain church that was once the nave of the abbey. A phoenix from the ashes, it was completely gutted by fire in 2006. A little exhibition of the history is well done but despite the signs the tea room wasn't open
