On 23rd March 1540, Watham Abbey was the last working Abbey or Monastery to be surrendered to the crown during the 'Dissolution of the Monasteries' which happened under King Henry VIII between 1536-1540 after his falling out with the pope. Over 800 religious buildings, including Monasteries, Abbeys, and Convents were disbanded during this period.
