Cleeve Abbey and its collection

Cleeve Abbey

In the Cistercian abbey of Cleeve visitors can catch a glimpse of monastic life 800 years ago. Although the abbey church was destroyed by Henry VIII during the dissolution in 1536, the cloister buildings including the gatehouse, 15th century refectory with its glorious angel roof and 13th century heraldic tiles have survived remarkably intact.
