Ramsey Abbey

Ramsey Abbey is a ruined abbey, near Ramsey, Cambridgeshire, south east of Peterborough and north of Huntingdon. Founded in 989, the abbey prospered until the Dissolution of the Monasteries.

Today, what remains of the abbey form part of the Abbey School. The abbey Gatehouse, the Alsmhouses, and the parish church can still be seen.

Stone from the abbey was used to build Caius College, Cambridge, King's College, Cambridge and Trinity College, Cambridge.
