The abbey ruins of Wenlock Priory are set in the beautiful little village of Much Wenlock in Shropshire.
As you walk around the ruins,you can see a beautifully coved washing fountain which the monks used prior to eating.
There is a very well kept topiary garden which is set against the beautiful old infirmary building,this is now a private residence.
The ruins do not take long to get around and a audio guide is available from reception for you to listen to which along with the guide boards,provide information about the abbey and what life was previously like.
The loveliest part of the abbey was the walls of the chapter house,the walls were beautifully carved and the carved columns could still be seen.
These ruins are lovely to look around and worth a visit,and whilst your there it is worth taking a look around Much Wenlock itself with its lovely historic buildings and tranquil setting.
