ABBOTSBURY is a large village and parish near the to be part cif the ruins of a mansion built on the site of
and out ot the remains of the abbey, by Sir Giles
West Fleet, pleasantly ,situated in a deep valley open to Strangeways, and in which he resrided: the conventual
church, traces of which still exist, stood a little to the
the sea at the oSouth-west and sheltered by lofty hills to north of the abbey: the old tithe-'barn of the monastery
is stiIJ in good preservation; it is 105 yards in length,
the north, and terminus of the Abbotsbury branch of with large porch and buttresses on the north side; ad-
joining thereto is an hexagonal towex. On an eminence
the Great Western railway from Weymouth, 9 miles south-west of the village are situated the ruins of St.
Catharine's chapel, supposed to have been erected in the
south-west from Dorchester, 9 north-west from Wey- reign of Edward IV.; it was of stone, strengthened by
buttreslses on the north and south sides; at the north- .
mouth, in the Western division of the county, Uggescombe west angle is a tower; the roof is finely arched and a
few of the ornaments still remain: from its altitude it
hundred, Dorchester petty sessional division, Weymouth serves for a landmark at sea, being visible at a great
distance. Henry VIII. granted the manor to Sir Giles

with the fishery, water, and soil of East Fleet, also the
(.ibbotsbury portion), archdeaconry of Dorset and swannery ann site of the monastery of West Fleet: from
this family it desoended to the Earl oil Ilchester P.C.
of Salisbury. The church of St. Nichola,s is a "ery whose seat is Abbotsbury CaS'tle, a Gothic residence
commanding a beautiful view of the West Bay. Nearly

decoy and keeper's house, where as many as 1,057 swans
and aisles, separated by piers and Pointed arches, antique are kept, together with all kinds of wild fowl. The
inhabitants' are chiefly employed in the maekerel fishery

William Jennings, by will dated 1852, gave £500 in

of great antiquity: Canute, the Danish King, gave it

steward: in early ages BertuU had built a church here

which he dedicated to St. Peter; that having gone to

decay, Orc founded a monaste'l'Y in the year 1044, and

it with eight of the neighbouring manors: the abbey
