Haughmond Abbey :: Shared Description

Haughmond Abbey is a ruined, medieval, Augustinian monastery a few miles from Shrewsbury. It was probably founded in the early 12th century. It was a substantial, successful and wealthy house for most of its four centuries, although evidence of abuses appeared before its dissolution in 1539. The buildings fell into disrepair and the church was largely destroyed, although the remains of some of the domestic buildings remain impressive including its abbots' quarters, refectory, cloister and the substantially surviving chapter house which has a frontage richly bedecked with 12th and 14th century carving and statuary. The site is now in the care of English Heritage and is open to the public during the summer (LinkExternal link English Heritage).

The ruins are Grade I-listed (Historic England List Entry Number: 1052157 LinkExternal link ).
