Roche Abbey and its collection

Roche Abbey

Set in a valley landscaped by 'Capability' Brown in the 18th century, the most striking feature of this Cistercian abbey is the end of its church, built in the new Gothic style around 1170. It has one of the most complete ground plans of any English Cistercian monastery, laid out as excavated foundations. The story of the pillaging of Roche, recorded by the son of an eyewitness, is among the most vivid documents of the Dissolution of the Monasteries.
