David Searle, who is one of the tour guides at the ancient building, said: “We’ve got various myths and legends, with sheets about them all scattered about the abbey.

“We’ll describe them and answer questions about them, things like that.

“The abbey itself is open in general as well.”

Mr Searle says a demonstration may be on offer to show visitors how they abbey’s bells are rung.

“Last Sunday, there with 67 people there in just half a day,” he said.

“It’s all free, there’s no charge at all.

“People can just turn up.

“We’ve got a graveyard trail that we do as well. There are normally two of them in the afternoon. Someone will explain what is so important about the area.”
