About

Founded in 1136 and originally a house of Augustinian canons.

 

The venue is bursting with character and historic beauty, its extraordinary medieval ruins and beautifully restored buildings are set within 5 acres of spacious grounds, with a unique scenic canal-side location.

 

In 2007, a re-formation project was created to restore three of Grade I and II listed buildings, along with improving the landscape and conserve the important standing structures.

 

Two main buildings dating from the 15th century have been restored and conserved and are now back in daily use. Special events and projects can now be hosted, establishing the site as an inspiring heritage attraction and cultural venue.
