Very scenic and near the caves and St. Patrick's well. Unfortunately, the mill wasn't open on the day we visited.

The Abbey mill has a beautiful walkway around the mills, caves and down to St Patricks well. Great for a family day out and for walkers. A lovely cafe shop here too.

The coffee shop is open on Sunday's for the time being not sure of times.. As for the mill wheel and surrounding areas no charge and always accessible.. It is just beside the river, catsby caves and st patricks well.
