Remains of Sibton Abbey, Sibton - East Suffolk

Remains of a Cistercian abbey built in 1150. A Countryside Stewardship agreement enabled the abbey meadow to be brought into appropriate management and part funded repair and consolidation of the bridge in 2018/19. A first phase of work focussed on the monks’ refectory was completed in June 2019 with further support from the owners and Historic England through a Repair Grants for Heritage at Risk grant. A second phase of work focussing on remaining structures of the south range of the cloister is anticipated in 2019/20.
