This marvellous aerial view of a monastery is a deceptively charming picture which carefully shows the layout of the entire monastic complex. It shows such typical and essential features as the Chapter House, cloisters, cellar, infirmary, Misericorde or rest room, along with the kitchen, refectory and dormitory. Outside lies the well and the orchard. We can also see the Abbot’s House on the right, near the fish pond. The mill, of course, sits on the river by the bridge, while the almonry serves as an official building next to the entrance.
