Polesworth Abbey

UK»England»Warwickshire»Polesworth Abbey

Polesworth Abbey stands on the north bank of the River Anker in the centre of the village of Polesworth. The Abbey was founded almost 1200 years ago and the site contains the remains of the Mediaeval Cloister, the Parsonage House and Refectory, as well as the Church and enigmatic mound in the Churchyard. The Abbey Church has a long history, but it remains a place of prayer and the site retains an aura of holiness and peace. Considerable changes were made to the Church building in the Sixteenth and in the nineteenth century. The mediaeval Cloister wall has survived and can be visited in the Parsonage garden which, like much of the surroundings and the Abbey Gateway, is a Scheduled Monument site. The Parsonage is attached to the Abbey Church on the south side and visitors are welcome to see the Refectory with its Sixteenth Century fireplace and memories of the Elizabethan Manor House that replaced the monastic buildings after the Dissolution.
