This ruined priory is very well preserved and looked after. It is is in the hands of English Heritage and they manage it very well. Apparently if you are thinking of getting married it would be a really cool place in which to do it.

Despite the information board stating the priory was open it was shut so we had to make do with a look around the outside from the road. Looked well preserved and we would have loved to look inside. Maybe next visit????
