WELCOME!
1,000 years ago this isolated spot on Norfolk’s River Bure was a thriving monastery dominating the area.
Today the Norfolk Archaeological Trust owns St Benet’s Abbey. You are invited to visit the Abbey and to explore this website for practical information and historical facts.

The website is adapted for mobile phone so you can access information on site at St Benet's. Underlined text will bring up a picture, e.g. here, or link to an outside site. Click or press underlined text to expand a picture to full screen.
