Remains of Bindon Abbey

I

Remains of Cistercian Abbey, founded in 1149 at Little Bindon, West Lulworth (q.v.) and moved to the present site in 1172. The Abbey was erected in the late C12-mid C13. Dissolved in 1539, and largely demolished - materials being used in the construction of "Bindon Abbey" and work to Lulworth Castle. The Church consisted of a nave with north and south aisles, crossing, transepts with eastern chapels, and square-ended presbytery. South of this was the cloister, with domestic buildings of the abbey around it. The foundations of much of the abbey survive, with the lower parts of the walls. At the west end of the church the walls stand some 25 ft high, but elsewhere little remains above 8 ft. For full description see RCHM, Dorset Vol. 11, p404. The ruins very overgrown and in poor repair. RCHM Monument 3. Scheduled Ancient Monument.
