EYNSHAM ABBEY

DESCRIPTION + /

Site of Benedictine Abbey (1005-1539), with associated fishponds. Founded on the site of an important 9th century church, which may have been extant since the mid 7th century. Excavations and surveys have found the church within the graveyard of the present St Leonard's Church, with the cloister and claustral buildings arranged to the South of the abbey church. To the South of these are the earthwork remains of five fishponds and a moated site. The church is first documented in 864, but may have been extant for two centuries.
