  • Amazing place. Beautiful, soulful and founded by William the Conqueror's grandson in the early 1130s to initially provide "hospitality" to the local poor during the "Anarchy" English Civil War and later to pilgrims travelling between Glastonbury and Canterbury.
  • Absolutely beautiful. Perfect for a wedding. The graduation that was held there was well laid out and great scenery for pictures.
