Fodor's Review

While you can't go inside, you can get close to the remans of this genuinely medieval abbey. This ruined tower belonged to a Dominican abbey that was founded in 1226 and returned to the Crown in 1541 after the dissolution of the monasteries. It was used as a courthouse until Cromwellian forces destroyed most of it it in the 17th century.
