There was a cruel machine in the shape of a winch which pulled a sled up the slopes to the abbey. The winch power was supplied by a wheel , much the same as the wheel we see mice running inside, only 3 or 4 metres in diameter.

We didn't really fancy staying there and paying 8€ for the privilege! We did fork out 3€ for 10 mins of water. It never takes 10 minutes to fill our tank as it's never completely empty.
