BANWELL COURT

DESCRIPTION + /

Also known as the Abbey. Two houses, formerly a single building built as a bishop's residence 1443-65. Allegedly constructed within or on the site of a Saxon monastic foundation, but that is generally considered to be either at ST35NE12 or to be at or near near Banwell church (ST35NE21). The building is 14th century and perhaps earlier, altered in the 15th century with major reworkings in the early and late 19th century. It contains a 15th century domestic chapel. A fishpond, presumably Mediaeval, survives as an earthwork, and was drained circa 1800.
