MILTON ABBEY

DESCRIPTION + /

Secular college founded in 933, refounded as a Benedictine abbey in 964, dissolved in 1539. Almost all the conventual buildings have been destroyed, an exception being part of the refectory, which was incorporated into Lord Milton's mansion. The sites and plans of non extant components have been taken from a printed plan at approximately 1/2500 scale, exhibited in the Abbey Church. This is a re-drawing, perhaps late 19th century of a mid 18th century migration plan. It is not specifically dated but shows the complete village of Milton Abbas before it was removed to its present position.
