The abbey grounds are rather large which makes sense since in those days such organisations were pretty much self sufficent. I took my time wandering around taking photos of the old buildings.
There were not as many people around as on the terraces but as with the terraces I was able to frame some decent shots excluding the visitors in most cases.
I Only just noticed the stairs going down to the pond NOW otherwise I would certainly have gone down to take some closeups and some pictures of the buildings and surroundings from different angles.

It was founded in 1196 although the current buildings date from the 18th century.
