Beautiful ruins. Easy to find. Worth visiting. Limited parking space and a short walk down a track (can be very muddy in wet weather).

Well worth stopping by and having a wander. Impressive ruins, with sufficient structure to get a feel for the place, and enough explanatory notices to understand what's still there.

Set just off a minor road, the ruins of Lilleshall Abbey are set in wonderful rolling countryside, and are an wonderfully atmospheric attraction. The information boards offer an insight into how it must have been nearly 500 years ago.

Lovely abbey nestled in the little village of Lilleshall. Beautiful and peaceful with little boards around explaining the history of the abbey. Nice place to take the dogs for a walk.

Found this on the English Heritage website as a ruin to explore. Very well kept site with some very informative plaques on the walls. Good for walking around thinking what life was like for the Monks. Dog welcoming as well!

What a lovely abbey this would have been in its heyday. before it was extensively damaged in the Civil war. It is beautifully cared for & plans are being made to improve the site. As it is, there are numerous boards full of interesting facts...More

An idyllic spot where, if history is your thing, you can go back in time and imagine the life of monks and the subsequent conflicts they endured. On a nice day it's good spot for a picnic, but that's about it.
