A couple of weeks ago a post popped up on our Facebook page about "Le Weekend du Patrimoine" (The Heritage Weekend). It gave various suggestions about historical places throughout Normandy that would be offering guided visits during the week-end of 14/15th September. Top of the suggestions was The Abbey at Le Plessis Grimoult.
Now we have lived here for 6 years and Le Plessis Grimoult is the next village to us yet we have never heard of the Abbey. So I went online and found out a bit more about this unknown piece of heritage right on our doorstep. It turns out that it is a ruined priory dedicated to St Etienne, including the remains of the priory, a walled/fortified garden, a maze and further archaeological interest.
