In the wilds of Norfolk Wymondham Abbey can be found in the beautiful market town of Wymondham in Norfolk.
The small town is dominated by the old Abbey built from around the 1100s and which fell into disrepair as a result of the Reformation and closure of many abbeys. The locals purloined the valuable stone from the buildings for their own use.
The stone was shipped from Caen in Normandy to build the abbey for the Benedictine Order.
It was not until the early 1900s that the abbey was restored to use.
Wandering around the Abbey grounds and field of ruins is a peaceful experience
A warm friendly atmosphere, The new St Benidiviuts end St Margarets, are a fabulous way of joining up 900 years of history to which Wymondham Abbey has been a custom to.
Wonderful architecture especially the ceiling. Look for the hidden stones in the upper window edges, they have been altered see if you can see the old ones
The Abbey is open every day for worship and to visitors and I hope, having visited our website, you will come and see us in person. A very warm welcome awaits you.
