Bayham Abbey

Bayham Abbey was founded around 1207 by a combination of the Premonstratensian monasteries of Otham and Brockley, and continued to function until the Dissolution of the Monastaries under King Henry VIII.


It is reputedly haunted by monks that have been both sighted and heard chanting. The sounds of bells have been reported and insense has also been smelled.
