Shaftesbury Abbey Museum and Gardens

0

The excavated foundations of this once important and influential Abbey lie in a peaceful walled garden, with an extensive herb garden and medieval orchard. The museum brings to life the story of Saxon England’s foremost Benedictine nunnery, founded by King Alfred in 888AD. The Abbey acted as the catalyst for the prosperity of the town and surrounding area for over 650 years;  it was destroyed on the orders of Henry VIII in 1539
