St Nicholas Church , Abbotsbury

St Nicholas Church is open during daylight hours to welcome the weary traveller. Do come in, rest awhile and and enjoy the surroundings of the Grade 1 listed church.

St.Nicholas dates from the late 14thcentury or early 15thcentury and was built as the parish church, alongside the Abbey Church of St Peter. The only remains of the Abbey are a wall to the south of the church, and St Catherine’s chapel about a mile away.
