MEDMENHAM ABBEY

The site of a Cistercian Abbey. The abbey was founded in 1204 and was dedicated to St Mary. Excavations have located the abbey layout and most of the buildings appear to have been constructed between 1232 and 1280. The abbey was dissolved in 1536. The site is now occupied by a late 16th century building, called Medmenham Abbey. The notorious `Hellfire Club' met here in the 18th century.
