An alternative gravel path into the cloister avoids the gate.
Access to the visitor centre is over uneven wall footings, up three steps and over a short ramp with a 10cm step with a handrail.
The abbey nave and transepts have a short grass surface, which is firmer in dry weather. The main routes around the monument are gravel or grass.
There is one 15cm step onto the gravel path around the cloister.
There are numerous archaeological remains within the grass, which can be difficult to see.
