  • I've visited Villers probably half a dozen times and the site continues to develop. A nice new feature is that the access has now moved to the mill across the street, and the old entrance has now become the exit point. The new entrance provides an access path with panoramic views of the Abbey with explanations of its history. It has a nice symmetry to the stairway at the other end of the site, which takes you across the railway and provides a view from the other side.
  • I had been here several times years ago, taking pictures during my art studies. And when I visited last weekend, I was enchanted all over again. Such an inspiring and beautiful place. They now have a new visitors centre, timeline walkway, cafĂ© and shop which is are all great bonus. Some digital 3D models would be an added value to breathe live into the remains of the abbey.
