Moored at the jetty alongside this wonderful ruin and joined the free tour that starts at the windmill at 3.00pm, we went on Wednesday, check the website for other days. Absolutely fascinating to see the preserved arch actually inside the windmill, one wonders 'why' ?

Passed by couple of times and looks really good, few people walking round having a good look. Is in middle of no where.

Set adjacent to the broads,free mooring available,this ancient Christian site can hint at a more austere time when there was an active Abbey. Few remains to be seen but there is a "listening bench" that had a few fascinating audio items that help you understand...More

We moored up on a cold but bright March day. We very much enjoyed the information board by the moorings and the one at the entrance to the gatehouse. The highlight of our trip was the listening bench, to sit there and have the layout...More

It’s beautiful in so many different ways. I live locally and visit here walking and by kayak. I visit at all times of the day and in all seasons. It can have a backdrop of the most fearsome thunderous sky or a beautiful blue summer...More

We stumbled across these old ruins, and felt fortunate that we had. Not a great deal to see but delve into the history of the place and you will find it fascinating. We had to make a second visit in order to make more sense...More

Situated on the banks of the river this is a splendid site to visit. There is a small car park if you're travelling by car ( a long narrow lane leads to it). Can be muddy to explore the whole site so wear appropriate footwear....More
