About Abbotsbury Abbey

Abbotsbury Abbey was founded in the 11th century by a Dane called Orca who was a follower of Cnut. The Abbey dominated the town for over 500 years but was destroyed in the 1500's during the dissolution of the monastries. Only part of the Abbey was left due to its usefulness, this is called Tithe Barn and is one of the oldest in Britain.
