Site Notes

RCAHMW/1925, 358: `The present parish church is a modern structure, built within the precincts of the former abbey of St. Dogmael's, and probably out of much of its remains. Beyond two oak chairs, bearing dates 1700 and 1738 respectively, no furniture or fittings that may have belonged to any earlier edifice have been preserved...The ruins of the Abbey of St. Mary the Virgin, founded 1115 for monks of the reformed Benedictine Order of Tiron, stand south of the parish churchyard, from which they are separated by a wall'.
