The route from the visitor centre to the church, through the remains of the abbey outbuildings (cloister range), is about 65m long.
It starts as a timber-decked steel bridge featuring one flight of 28 steps and another of 8 steps (both with shallow treads and handrails on both sides). The route continues as gravel paths with four sets of steps (two with handrails).
There is also a flight of:
- 9 unevenly spaced steps (no handrail) at the east processional doorway into the church
- 8 unevenly spaced steps (no handrail) at the west processional doorway
The floor of the church is mainly level, with a paved walkway through gravel. The crossing and high altar are each up a single step.
