The old abbey is a set of interesting ruins, well interpreted with a strange history. Atmospheric place wondering in and around the monks domestic spaces as well as the religious places.

Great find during a lovely walk called the drummer boy walk which goes along the old railway track alongside the river bank and back past the abbey, which is very impressive and past the drummer boy stone back into Richmond. Our dog loved it also.

Many similarities to other ruined abbeys resulting from the dissolution under Henry VIII in the 1539+ era. Lots of buildings visible, including a large refectory. Positioned close to the river Swale it is an attractive and romantic ruin. Worth an hour of your time.

Children enjoyed the beauty of this historic place. Although we didn't spend enough time. It's relaxing to walk with quite nature.

Yes the abbey is just a couple of minutes walk from Howe Villa, which is a very striking building with huge windows as I recall.
