Fearn Abbey and Parish Church
Fearn Abbey and Parish Church
The Abbey was built here in 1238 and rebuilt in the mid 1300's. Converted to a Parish Church when the reformation came to the area in 1560. Hit by lightning on Sunday the 10 Aug 1742 the heavy roof collapsed on the congregation and killed around 50 people. The building was abandoned and a new Church built but by the 1770 's it too was in ruins. The old original 1300's building was then rebuilt with stone from the new Church and put back in use.
