WAVERLEY ABBEY

Waverley Abbey was the first Cistercian abbey in England. It was founded in 1128 by William Giffard, Bishop of Winchester.

waverley-abbey

In July 1201 the abbey was flooded “and all but carried away” by a storm which caused the abbey’s crops to fail. The abbey was rebuilt during the 13th-century, and much of the remains visible today date from this period.

wa

The site was excavated by the Surrey Archaeological society between 1890 and 1903, and the ruins restored in 1966. (Photo below: 1895).
