Bindon Abbey House
Bindon Abbey House
The house in this photograph was built by Thomas Weld in the eighteenth century on the site of a former Cistercian Abbey built in 1172. Thomas Weld owned Lulworth Castle so this very much smaller house was by way of a retreat. An upper room served as a Roman Catholic chapel until a modern church was built in the 1970's in Wool. Also linked with the Bindon Abbey ruins are some of the fictional events that occur in Thomas Hardy's "Tess of the D'Urbervilles".
