HERITAGE HIGHLIGHTS: 16th century brick gatehouse
The remains include the walls of the abbey church and associated buildings, with earthworks and a moat. The most impressive remain is probably the 16th century brick gatehouse. The original Lady Chapel has been restored and is occasionally used for worship.
The original site of Leiston Abbey (cleverly called 'Old Leiston Abbey') is located 3 km to the north east.
