Somerset, Cleeve Abbey 1910's

Cleeve Abbey, near the town of Washford in Somerset, was founded in the 12th century as a monastery of the Cistercian Order. it was closed during the 1530's by King Henry VIII's 'Dissolution of the Monasteries', to become a private home, and later to be used as farm buildings. It was realised in the 19th century that there was a need to preserve such a historic set of buildings, and nowadays Cleeve Abbey is under the care of British Heritage.
