Was it a priory or an abbey? It may be called Mottisfont Abbey, but it certainly doesn't look like an abbey now. Can we see evidence for the former layout of the religious house in the existing building? Once you know where to look, maybe you'll see the place differently next time you visit! Our archaeologist James Brown will take you on a little tour to point out some of the obvious, and not so obvious, clues you can see in the architecture. Maybe you'll find clues for older structures in more of our places...
