After the dissolution of the monasteries ordered by Henry VIII, this abbey fell into ruin and its stone was re-used to build forts along the coast. Only the foundations now remain of what was once the largest Cistercian abbey in England. The cloister has partly survived, notably the wing which houses an exhibition on monastic life and the 13C refectory which has been converted into the parish church.
