About Bayham Old Abbey

A 13th century monastery of the Catholic Order of Canons Regular of Prémontré, the ruins of Bayham Old Abbey are located on the Kent-Sussex border.

Dissolved in the sixteenth century during Henry VIII’s dissolution of the monasteries, Bayham Old Abbey’s original structure can still be made out from the partial remains of its impressive stone walls and visitors can also see a fourteenth century gatehouse located on site.

Bayham Old Abbey is now managed by English Heritage and is set amidst landscaped gardens.
