SY5785 : Graveyard of the Parish Church of St. Nicholas, Abbotsbury

taken 13 years ago, near to Abbotsbury, Dorset, Great Britain

Graveyard of the Parish Church of St. Nicholas, Abbotsbury
Graveyard of the Parish Church of St. Nicholas, Abbotsbury
Beyond the graveyard is the gate of the ruined abbey, and towering over all this is St Catherine's Chapel on Chapel Hill. The parish church was built outside the abbey precincts following a dispute between the monks and the parishioners. When the abbey was dissolved by Henry VIII, St Catherine's Chapel only survived because it was a useful day-mark for shipping (and possibly showed a light at night).
