A lovely place of “peace” Hundreds of years of prayer have produced an atmosphere of spirituality where you can sit and be quiet and feel Gods Grace and ask for his guidance today, tomorrow and always.

We were met by a guide who spent a lot of time explaining the history of the abbey. It was very interesting and much appreciated. The abbey is well worth a visit. The information leaflet is well written.
