Muchelney, Langport, Somerset, TA10 0DQ
Disabled Facilities

The monastery was first established at Muchelney by Ine, a 7th-century King of Wessex. It did not survive the Viking invasions, but the abbey was refounded about AD950 and lasted for nearly six centuries. The present remains date largely from the 12th century. The best-preserved feature of the site today is the Abbot's Lodging which had only just been completed when the abbey was surrendered to Henry VIII in 1539. Access to the ground floor only.

It's hardly surprising that Somerset, that English county famed for both Bath and Glastonbury, is one of the best areas to visit to see a wonderful collection of English churches.

Leave the tourist trail, and you'll find some of the most marvellous Saxon and medieval architecture and decoration in the country. More...
