A visit to Roche Abbey
Beautifully set in a valley landscaped by ‘Capability’ Brown in the 18th Century. Roche Abbey has one of the most complete ground plans of any English Cistercian monastery, laid out as excavated foundations. The soaring early Gothic transepts of this Cistercian monastery still survive to their original height and are ranked in importance with the finest early Gothic architecture in Britain. To complete your fun family day out in South Yorkshire why not visit close by Brodsworth Hall and Gardens, or Conisbrough Castle.
