The ruins of the priory are set away from the bustle and have superb interpretation boards with pictures of the ruins superimposed on reconstructions. If only all such sites were explained in the same way. A stunning place.

Although ruins there are information boards and it is pleasant to walk round. Near to town but very peaceful. A dedicated small priory garden is located here.
