CHOTES ABBEY

DESCRIPTION + /

Possible site of a Cistercian monastery, extant 1176-8. Bertram de Verdun gave land at Chotes, or Chotene, to the monks of Aunay for the construction of an abbey. In the third year after its foundation it was moved to Croxden. The exact location is not known, and Tanner suggests that it was at Cawton, close to the Verdun castle in Alton, (see SK04SE31).
