MONUMENT NO. 210467

DESCRIPTION + /

Site of Saxon monastery. A monastery is documented at Tissbury in 710, 716 and 759. After 870, there are no references to it , and its lands were transferred to Shaftesbury Abbey in 984. No remains of this Monastery have been identified, but local tradition suggest that it could have been sited on higher ground above the present church (ST 92 NW 10) within an area called Paradise (centred ST 944292). The area lies behind the cottages on the North side of Church Street where unidentified bones have been dug up in the back gardens. Blair suggests that Tisbury functioned as a minster (see ST92NW10).
