The hermit’s cave is still there in the woods to the south east of the village, accessible via a bridleway. However at the moment (Dec 3013) there is a temporary closure at the W end.
The abbey site is scheduled as an ancient monument but is privately owned. For access, please ask at Abbey House or ring the number on English Heritage's website.
The key to Dale’s church can usually be obtained from, during opening hours, from the Carpenter’s Arms. No trip to Dale would be complete without a visit to the Friar’s House or the Carpenter’s Arms!
