ROCESTER ABBEY

DESCRIPTION + /

An Augustinian monastery, founded circa 1146 and dissolved in 1538; no visible remains except a possible garden earthwork. There is evidence that in the Middle Ages there were two churches adjoining one another. The Parish Church of Saint Michael, mentioned in 1229 and the conventual Church of Saint Mary, attached to the Abbey. Dependencies: Halywell, Mobberley and Leyes priory cells. Probable earthworks associated with the Abbey consisting of platforms and building platforms, potential elements of the precinct boundary and a number of other bank earthworks, are visible on air photographs and were mapped as part of the Staffordshire National Mapping Programme project. The earthworks are extant on the latest 2010 vertical photography. Scheduled.
