Talley Abbey near Llandeilo
Talley Abbey is a ruined former monastery of the Premonstratensians ("White Canons") in the village of Talley in Carmarthenshire, Wales, six miles (10 km) north of the market town of Llandeilo. It lies in the River Cothi valley. Access to the site of the abbey is free
The monastery, which was founded by Rhys ap Gruffydd in or about 1185, is in the care of Cadw
There are two lakes near the abbey ruins, which was used for fish farming to support the community of monks.
The abbey was dissolved by Henry VIII and the structure mined by the villagers for stone to build much of the present village and the chapel next to the abbey.
The ruinous tower is surrounded by steep wooded hills, and it can be reached by a circuitous lane from the main road. It is well signposted.
