Sherborne Abbey

The Abbey Church of St Mary the Virgin, also known as Sherborne Abbey, has been a Saxon cathedral (705–1075), a Benedictine abbey (998–1539), and now stands as a beautiful parish church.

Today you can see parts of the original saxon church in the abbey’s facade, but by far its most striking feature is the 15th Century fan vaulted ceiling.  Some of the other original monastery building are now occupied by Sherbourne school.
