Abbey Works

You are here Home  > Miscellaneous >  Abbey Works

This land was formed as an abbey but was forced to dissolve under Henry VIII. One monk put curse on the property saying that anyone who destroys the remains of the surrounding 20 foot wall would suffer… And so far, no one has been tempted to do so. The remains still stand, but floating monks have been seen and filmed here.
