Full Description

Origins: Officially titled The Abbey of St. Mary of Edwardstow, Netley Abbey was founded in 1239. It was one of the last Cistercian abbeys to be founded in England. Henry III became patron of the abbey in 1251, and his name can still be seen on the base of the northeast-crossing tower.In 1536 at the time of the Reformation, Henry VIII dissolved the abbey and it was granted to Sir William Paulet, later the Marquis of Winchester, who converted the abbey into a private residence, destroying many of the abbey buildings. Much of the demolished stone went into Netley Castle.In 1830 the abbey came into the hands of the Chamberlayne family of Cranbury Park. Today it is managed by English Heritage.Copy photograph of an original photograph, made by Derek Dine about 1975.
