BRIGHTLEY ABBEY

DESCRIPTION + /

Cistercian abbey founded in 1138 with an abbot and 12 monks from Waverley. It was abandoned in 1141 when the site was found to be unsuitable, and the monks moved to Forde (ST30NE15). One of the buildings at Brightley Farm has a single cell plan with original entrance in the right gable end. No original features survive, but it has been suggested that it was a former monastic chapel.
