The barn, Abbey Fields
The barn, Abbey Fields
The barn and the gatehouse are the only recognisable buildings left of the abbey - an Augustinian priory founded by Geoffrey de Clinton in about 1122 and dedicated to St Mary the Virgin. At its height the priory had gardens and pools along the Finham Brook and in 1447 was raised to the status of an abbey. This was comparatively shortlived - after the Dissolution in the 1530s the buildings were dismantled and used as building materials. The pools had disappeared by 1700 and the land was under pasture.
