Bayham Old Abbey
Bayham Old Abbey
Pevsner describes Bayham Old Abbey as "The most impressive monastic ruin of Sussex". Bayham belonged to the Premonstratensian Order, founded at Otham in Kent about 1200 direct from Premontre and moved to Bayham between 1208 and 1211. The church and the buildings around the cloister are surprisingly high. This view looks from the south towards the church. The high altar is near the tree on the right - see Link
