Part privately owned, run by the marvellous English Heritage, this is a ruined gem; or a gem of a ruin. There's not an awful lot of information about the site, but there's not a lot of the site left. But what is left is magnificent.

Off the beaten track, these ruins are beautiful and allow for quiet reflection without hoardes of people running around. There is information around to tell you what is what but no more than is essential - perfect for those who want quiet, yet beautiful, abbey...More

I live 5 minutes away from Croxden Abbey, and have been a few times to take photos. The first time I went I was very impressed, but for me, it's one of those places that, once you've been once, you've seen all you can see....More

Ruins of the Cistercian abbey that existed here from around 1179 to 1538. The site is well worth a visit and the remaining west front of the church is amazing and gives sense of how imposing the place must have been. A couple of practical...More
