MISSENDEN ABBEY

DESCRIPTION + /

The Augustinian abbey at Missenden was founded by William de Missenden in 1133. It was one of the first, and largest, of the Arrouasian houses in England. It was dissolved in 1538 when the church was demolished. Some of the remains are incorporated in the country house which was built on the site of the cloister in 1574, (see SP80SE35). Excavations carried out in the grounds revealed the layout of the abbey church, other monastic buildings and evidence of a fishpond.
