There's more here than meets the eye. From the outsode it looks like just another ruin, and in some ways it is, but they are extensive, and offer an insight into the life of an abbey 500 plus years ago

Visited the abbey having walked from Uffingham via Haughmond woods - and felt we should go the extra distance. Always liked this Augustinian abbey having visited 25 years ago. Pity it does not open till 30th March. Will hopefully visit again when open.
