Neath Abbey and Gatehouse

Originally founded as a daughter house of Savigny in 1130, the abbey was used by Savigniac monks from Western Normandy and by 1730 much of the Abbey was being used for Copper smelting as industry started to impose on South Wales

Fairly complete remains of the abbey survive, together with the sixteenth-century mansion raised within its precincts. Conservation work started in April 2014 and is still ongoing, so you can expect some restrictions to access in some places, but this is still a fab place for the kids to run about and to enjoy family picnic.
