  • The transepts and choir were destroyed in the mid-16th century when the central tower collapsed; they were left in ruins until the late 19th and early 20th centuries when they were restored.
  • Originally located on the side of a hill near Houston, the abbey is home to a Celtic cross which is over 1,000 years old.
