  • Good signage along the road and room for a couple of well parked cars at the top. I wouldn’t really class it as a walk as it’s so short; my circular route including exploring the graveyard just about hit 0.3 miles.
    It is however a very interesting site, the architecture is superb. The information panels are readable and interesting. I walked around a couple of times having read more of the detail halfway through.
    There is a section closed off and evidence of further restoration. Looking forward to coming back in the future to see more.
