HUMBERSTON ABBEY

DESCRIPTION + /

Tironian and, later, Benedictine Abbey of St Mary and St Peter. Founded in 1160 as an abbey of the order of Tiron, but not a possession of it. It probably adopted Benedictine orders after 1413 and was dissolved in 1536. The abbey buildings lie to the south of the mediaeval St Peter's Church (TA30NW10), although there is no evidence that the church was the abbey church. Excavations have located the reredorter,and chapter house. Middle Saxon and 9th century sherds were found during the excavations.
