Nr Winchcombe, Gloucestershire, GL54 5PB. Telephone 01242 602398.

Built in 1250 and dissolved in 1539 the Abbey was one of the most important Abbey's in England. It was said to hold a phial of Sacred Blood collected at the Crucifixion, but this was later exposed as a hoax. The visitor is accompanied by an audio commentary while touring the ruined building and the monks will take you back to the days of the working Abbey. There is an admission charge and National Trust members gain free entry.

Hetty Peglers Tump

Uley, Gloucestershire.

This 180foot Neolithic Barrow is just a short walk from the B4066. The monument entrance is  surrounded by a stone wall leading to a long  central chamber which can be entered through the doorway, although uncomfortable on hands and knees, and accompanied with a torch, it is well worth the trouble. The monument was built over 4000 years ago and is in the stewardship of English Heritage.    
There is no admission charge.
