  Roche Abbey
by Arm-Chair-Hero

Roche Abbey is an old monestry. There are only ruins left but they are quite impressive. The area has a kind of eiree spooky feel to it.
You are able to walk around the grounds look at the lots of different flowers birds etc etc...........not a huge amount of information when I was last there but it is still worth a visit.

I was talking to a guy there last year who was a proffesional photographer......take you cameras folks........every visit will be different...apparently the stone changes colour depending on the weather...when I was there it was red........other times it is supposed to be white.....
10-15 mins drive from Connisboro Castle
45-1 hour from Sheffield city center

Address: Between Connisboro and Blyth....
