BINDON ABBEY

DESCRIPTION + /

Bindon Abbey founded 1172 by Roger de Newburgh for Cistercian monks, replaced the earlier foundation at Little Bindon (see SY87NW2) and was finally dissolved in 1539. After the dissolution it was granted to Sir Thomas Poynings, and Coker refers to a fair house which was built by Thomas, Viscount Bindon out of the ruins of the abbey. It was acquired by Humphrey Weld in 1641 and burnt down in the Civil War, circa 1644. The greater part of the present abbey remains, including the church, chapter house and east range was built in the late 12th to mid 13th centuries and there is now little recognisable work of later date. Listed.
