Details

Bardney Abbey, once the premier Benedictine Abbey in this area of Lincolnshire, had Anglo Saxon origins and was re-founded by Gilbert De Gant, Earl of Lincoln in 1087. His son raised the original modest endowment to a larger abbey. Dissolved at the dissolution of the monasteries in 1538 it became a house and then was abandoned. By the eighteenth century there was little to see. In 1909 excavation of the site began and revealed the plan of the abbey. Many carved stones were then recovered and some of these now form part of a new exhibition about the abbey in Bardney Parish Church.
