Another wonderful example of monastic influence in Somerset. The English Hertiage employee was very knowledgeable and taught us a lot about the Norman influence on monasticism in England. Thank you!
A lot more to explore than expected. Amazing 13th century tiles relaid in the nearby church. Check out the monks loos.
Although there were not many building left standing an effort had been made to show the life & conditions of a large mediaeval abbey before evil Henry VIII sold off the building & land to anyone who would pay for them. Even better was the English Heritage official who answered all my questions explaining the background to the"problems " of the Somerset levels & the abbey as well as a much wider discussion about our ancestry & linguistics. Great fun on a dull day.
A good look at how the Abbott lived with his monks . Nice staff and a warm welcome. Some good interactive displays.
Off the beaten track to learn more about the life of monk, and how about the only complete thatched monks' lavatory in England.
