One of the places we had a walk upto st blades chapel was a very peaceful place you felt like you could imagine what the place was like all those years ago with history behind it was a very spiritual experience.

Drive carefully down the track to get here then enjoy the view :) The ruins are intriguing but not spectacular but the scenery makes it well worth the detour off the main road!
