Another of our visits while we were in the Cotswolds was to
Hailes Abbey Ruins
just a short drive from where we were staying.
It is the site of a 13th Century Cisterian abbey
Founded in 1256 and once a celebrated pilgrimage site, the abbey now lies in ruins.
Remains of the dramatic cloister arches survive and there is a small museum
I always find it interesting to walk around castle and abbey ruins
looking at the layouts and trying to imagine life in those times
