Situated right in the centre of St Dogmaels are the ruins of a Tironensian Order Abbey. Originally set up as a priory, it gained Abbey status in 1115.
If ecclesiastical buildings and ruins are of interest, then the Abbey is well worth a visit. Housed in the Coach House Cafe is the Abbey Museum where you can find many artefacts discovered in the ruins of the Abbey. Next door to the Abbey is the church of St Thomas and just across the road from the entrance is Y Felin (the Mill) - one of the last working water mills in Wales and still produces traditional stoneground flour today.
The Abbey is open to the public daily and also plays host to many other events throughout the year. For a full inventory of events at the Abbey, please see the official website here…
