We visited Lilleshall Abbey on a Sunday afternoon, parking is not great so we left the car near the Lilleshall Monument and it was around a 20 min walk. The Abbey is great to see and for free it is brilliant to take in a...More

Really great little place off the beaten path and owned by english heritage. There is a little bit of information of the boards dotted around the site on the history of the building. Gates open from 10am and the entrance is free but we arrived...More

The handsome, largely twelfth and thirteenth century remains of this red sandstone Augustinian abbey, established in the 1140s, won't detain you too long. But they're worth visiting for a calming, secluded, rural setting very much in the middle of nowhere. Explore at your leisure to...More

Took the camera for a photography session. Very popular for families to spend time and enjoy a picnic. Not an overly large site, but interesting and provides ample photographic opportunities if you're looking for a Gothic/Steam Punk back drop. Main drawback is that there are...More

We had visited Buildwas Abbey first and although impressed with the ruins, left feeling slightly disappointed. We much preferred Lilleshall. It is a much larger site, though the ruins aren't as complete as Buildwas. There is plenty to explore, with plenty space for picnics but...More
