St Benet's Abbey

St Benet's Abbey was a medieval monastery of the Order of Saint Benedict, also known as St Benet's at Holme or Hulme. It is situated on the River Bure.


During the Dissolution of the Monasteries, the abbey's possessions were seized and within a few years the monks had dispersed. Today there remain only ruins which are under the care of Norfolk Archaeological Trust and is open to the public.


According to Coxe, the ruins are haunted by the apparition of a monk which appears on May 25th.
