The modern entrance to the Premonstratensian Abbey of St Agatha at Easby is on the west, river-side of the remains. The temptation for visitors is to try and access the ruins via the parish church on the south-east corner of the site. However there is a steep drop and the Ministry erected a helpful warning sign to redirect the unwary.

Behind the sign, from left to right, is the refectory, chapter house, and sacristy.
