RAMSEY ABBEY

DESCRIPTION + /

Benedictine monastery of SS Mary and Benedict. Founded in 969 when the site was offered by Ailwine to St Oswald, Bishop of Worcester. Dissolved in 1539. The only extant remains are the church, now heavily modified, but built into Ramsey Abbey House, (TL28NE16), and the gatehouse, (TL28NE7). Excavations in the abbey grounds in 1998-2002 revealed possible late Saxon buildings and a later Mediaeval artificial waterway with an adjacent crane and storehouse. The abbey precinct boundary has also been largely identified.
