Now nothing more than ruins, the abbey dates back to the 12th century both the ground of the abbey and the museum which sits within the grounds is said to be haunted. The abbey's most famous ghost is that of a spirit called Mary, who's said to have witnessed her husband taking his own life.

The Abbey House museum feature a mock-up of a Victorian street, lined with shops from that era. The creepy shopfronts created plenty of dark corners for spooks to hide in. The museum is said to be haunted by the former abbott of the abbey. Visitors have reported seeing dark shadows and hearing disembodied voices, screams and footsteps. Some have even reported being grabbed by unseen hands.
