In addition to the crosses, the Priory highlights include the square font and the richly carved pillars and arches. The conical tower is a prominent local landmark. Outside, on the south side of the cloister court, stand the ruins of a three-storey 13th century refectory with a dormitory. There are also well-preserved remains of a monastic fishpond and an Elizabethan dovecote. A leaflet guide to the church is available for a small donation.
