Netley Abbey (46 of 58)

The Abbey, from which the village got its name, is the most complete Cistercian monastery in Southern England. It originated when a colony of monks of the Cistercian Order crossed Southampton Water from Beaulieu to establish a new religious house at Netley in 1239. Founded by Peter des Roche, Bishop of Winchester, and officially named St.Mary of Edwards to (Sanctae Mariae de Loco Sancti Edwardi), the Abbey was under the patronage of Henry III. The hotel is located just 8 miles from Netley Abbey.
