Historic religious building originally under the spiritual leadership of either an abbot or abbess, usually consisting of a monastery or a convent. Many continue to carry the name abbey, even centuries later, after they change their function to a church or chapel. A majority of the 80 abbeys accessible within the UK today, where created in stone in the early medieval period and are in various states of ruin, though their beauty and religions significance is still obvious.
