685 Llangollen, Valle Crucis Abbey

Among the ruins of Valle Crucis Abbey you half expect to meet a monk strolling through the cloisters. Dating back to 1201 it's one of the best preserved medieval Abbeys in Wales, so is that movement in the shadows the abbot or just another (M.E.N. reader) walker?
