These 'church stairs' were first mentioned over six hundred years ago, and in the 1700's were apparently made from wood!.
It's a good old climb from Church Street below to the church itself and onwards to the Abbey ruins, and there are still resting places at regular intervals. So take a deep breath, start counting the steps and off we go.....
