OTLEY ABBEY

DESCRIPTION + /

Otley was the original site, founded in 1137, of the Cistercian monastery which moved to Thame in 1141. The monks abandoned the site due to its unsuitability. There is reference to a grange chapel in Otley in 1235-6. The suggested site of the monastery at Oddington Grange has several earthworks, but it is possible that this is village desertion rather than a monastic site.
