Ruins

Nice place with lots of history to walk around and explore. Bigger than Sawley which I visited recently and much bigger ruins.

Paid for an event and wanted everything to be perfect. the food was very tasty, plenty of it and well worth the money. However, the man in charge of the day was miserable and very unhelpful. There is no bar it was tea and coffee. After mixing with my guests and ensuring they were served and relaxed, I asked for a cup of tea. This was met with a long face, no manners, no smile from a very disgruntled impolite man who made me feel very awkward and embarrassed. He spoilt the event as everyone commented on him saying 'does he know you're paying the bill'

Worth a Visit
Jul 2020 • Couples
The abbey is located just off the centre of the town but is a quiet and serene place. The interior is a private events venue but it's possible, for a small cost, to walk round the ruins of the abbey. When we visited the café was still closed after the lockdown. It is possible to walk along the river side with a view of the abbey ruins for no charge.

We were lucky enough to have the place to ourselves on a rainy day innSeptember. Free admission and cafe Autisan both add to the appeal...

Incredible piece of history
Aug 2020
A must if you are in this area. Very Interesting. Located next to river. You can walk in and around the Abbey ruins and it gives you a sense of what life must have been like for the people that owned and serviced this place.

Lovely place to walk - full of history
Aug 2020 • Couples
We visited here in mid August - it was closed for tours, cafe etc but we could still wander around the grounds.

It’s a magnificent set of ruins with the only remaining choir pits in Britain. There are information boards which are very informative and you can take a walk along the canal side.

It’s a lovely gem of a place to visit. It was very peaceful and informative.

Well worth a visit.

.....than I remembered having not been for many years. The grounds are beautifully maintained with a sense of peace and tranquility that is hard to find in the world. Informative signs explain the ruins and historical context. Well worth a visit.

Great place for a nice walk and take in some history
May 2020
We went here during the Corona Virus whilst obeying social distancing. It was a beautiful place to visit to see the history from different periods. Although the main grounds were closed you could walk quite a bit around it with nice gardens , great plants and a wonderful walk down the river
