The impressive remains of an abbey founded by Stephen, later king of England, including much of the east end and west tower of the church, the ornately decorated chapter house and the cloister buildings. Set in the 'vale of nightshade', the romantic ruins were celebrated by Wordsworth in his prelude of 1805.

An exhibition on the history of the abbey, with a display of elaborately carved stones, can be seen in the viditor centre.
