BOURNE ABBEY

DESCRIPTION + /

The Augustinian Abbey of Bourne was founded in 1138 and surrendered in 1536(2), or 1539(5). On or before the year 1138 Baldwin Fitz Gilbert invited twelve canons of the order to settle near his castle at Bourne. He gave them St Peter's Church, Bourne, land, fisheries etc, a fish pond near the church, also the profits of several other churches. The monastic buildings were on the north side of the church, and the cloister adjoined the nave. Nothing remains of the cloister, but a row of low-pointed arches on the outer face of the north-west tower, now concealed by a modern stokehole, probably formed the south wall of the outer parlour or passage by which the cloister was entered from the outer court.
