‪The gatehouse is one of the most impressive gatehouses we've ever seen. Definitely worth a visit. Not much left of the rest of the abbey thanks to Henry the 8th.‬

‪What sets these monastic ruins apart is the presences of a virtually intact, massive gatehouse which is pretty unique. You can go inside and have a look as well.

Visiting on a pleasant sunny day means the abbey looks at its best.‬

‪This place carries something of a spooky tendancy lol. But don't let that put you off. Our friend from the States was amazed at how old it was and loved it. The grounds also around this place are great to stop and take a picnic or something. Allow for around 2hrs 30 to take it all in fully and the onsite staff were very helpful in anything you want to know. We called in on Sunday 3rd November and loved it. ‬

‪This must have been a magnificent abbey at one time. The gates are right there at the car park and the front entrance of the abbe is just beyond. Not much else remains and cows now graze where the bulk o the abbey once was.

t was founded as a priory in 1139 by William le Gros, the Earl of Yorkshire, and raised to the status of abbey in 1148. The abbey was closed in 1539 by Henry VIII as part of the Dissolution of the Monasteries. It managed to survive by becoming a secular college, until it was closed in 1547.

Built in Early Gothic style in the 13th and 14th centuries, little remains of the building, except for three walls of the chapter house and part of the cloister, though the ground plan of the abbey is traced out.

The main interest lies in the gatehouse which is amongst the earliest large-scale uses of brick in England. It stands two stories high and is structurally intact. There are few windows in the building, and the internal dimensions are cramped due to the thickness of the walls.

The outside of the building is adorned with three almost life-size statues directly above the gate. A bridge over the moat adjoins the gatehouse and is fortified with walls and guardrobes.

Sadly the hours it is open can be challenging to meet in winter months when it is only open on weekends.‬

‪Lovely place, we like it a lot. Was a bit windy but still enjoyed walking around. At least it's not only ruin;) ‬

‪This is off the beaten track and could do with more obvious signposting, however the gatehouse itself is an illuminating piece of history.‬

‪Having decided to have a few hours out on a sunny Sunday afternoon, and not wanting to travel too far ( 1/2 hr from M18 J5) I found this surreal 14thC architectural extravaganza in the English Heritage Handbook. Please ignore your Sat Nav when making your way there and just have a look at a decent map: my O/H asked en-route " Are you taking me somewhere to kill me?" Parking at the entrance is fairly limited, presumably because it's so off the beaten track. Unlike a lot of English Heritage sites this place is not commercialized or "themey", entry is free for members and only 6.60 per adult/ £17.20 family for non- members. There is a small gift shop selling hot/ cold drinks, crisps/ sweets etc and toilets but that's it commercially.
The approach is surreal, driving through rural Lincolnshire along country lanes when suddendly you turn a corner and are greeted by probably the grandest medieval gatehouse in England. Inside the Gatehouse there are 2 floors of stunning rooms/ passages, tunnels and well organized and informative displays ( access is via narrow, steep stone spiral stairs). The children there when we visited were overwhelmed and thrilled by the architecture, running shrieking and shouting with laughter from one space to another. The steps up to the ramparts offer great views over the original moat and the surrounding countryside. The Abbey ruins are exactly that but very atmospheric. It's not hard to imagine the inhabitants in medieval times going about their closely ordered lives within the walls. Perfect place for a family picnic or afternoon stroll. A sense of peace and being in another world here, yet minutes from the M180,not far from Lincoln, just a few miles from Cleethorpes( which is nicer and cleaner nowadays than most of the East Coast resorts north of the Humber- head for the south end, the old Fitties camp, the area around the gardens and nature reserve is stunning- puts Scarborough and Bridlington to shame. Have seen the street sweepers/ litter pickers out there at 7 pm on a bank holiday monday!) All in perfect for a picnic/ family afternoon out.‬

‪My boyfriend and I came here for a little day out with a picnic. We had seen great reviews on Tripadviaor and being English Heritage members, decided to visit.
The Gatehouse itself is quite interesting, with info boards all over to give extra detail and insight into the history of the Abbey.
The rooms lead off from each other and the layout is quite fascinating.

The ruins of the abbey aren’t as impressive, but if you have a decent imagination you can really appreciate it!

On a sunny day the grounds looks fab! ‬

‪This gatehouse is an impressive monument when you drive up to it looking like the entrance to a medieval castle. Inside is a good exhibition and the place itself is a warren of little passageways over two floors. The remnants of the monastery behind are relatively small bearing in mind that this was one of the richest ones in the country but no the less interesting. A bit out of the way but worth a visit if you are in the area.‬

‪Ventured over to Thornton abbey today as it was a lovely bright sunny winters day and around an hours drive so seemed like a good way to spend a Sunday afternoon - and it was! The place just looms out of the countryside from out of nowhere and looks massive amongst all the flat surrounding fields. It must have impressed the locals back in the day even more.
The car park is small but enough space for a winter weekend visit. The shop is tiny but has the usual collectibles and hot drinks from a little machine which hits the spot on a cold day whilst exploring the outdoor ruins section. There are toilets too. But the star is the gatehouse - amazing inside with two massive rooms surrounded by loads of little corridors of little rooms and windows to view the site.
It’s definitely worth a visit as there was more there than I expected and lots of history to read about. My partner also heard some strange noises whilst exploring the ruin, like something falling down. And once home I discovered an orb on my photos! Ghostly goings on aren’t guaranteed though lol. Go check it out for yourself it’s a great 2 hours out.‬
