Mulcheney Abbey and the Leach Pottery

Tour | Mulcheney Abbey

Wednesday 22 May 2013 - 10:30 until 16:00

Mulcheney Abbey was once a wealthy Benedictine house and the second oldest religious foundation in Somerset. The Abbey's principal buildings were demolished by Henry VIII in 1538, but the clearly-laid foundations of the Abbey, parts of the richly decorated cloister walk, 16th century Abbot's house and thatched monks lavatory remain intact. The day will comprise of a conducted tour of the Abbey remains, the Abbot's house and nearby church containing mediaeval tiles and a Jacobean painted ceiling. After a light pub lunch, there will be a demonstration by the potter, John Leach at his studio and a visit to a nearby forge.

This event has been organised by a local supporter group to help raise money for the Art Fund.
