Owned by English Heritage, Muchelney Abbey lies in ruins with its extraordinary footprint still very clearly visible. While the main abbey buildings were destroyed by Henry VIII in the 16th century, the abbot’s house still stands and is in excellent condition. With stone carvings, stained-glass windows and breathtaking architecture, visiting is absolutely worth the time. The abbey also lies just off the River Parrett Trail and if you want more history, you can visit the nearby Priest’s House too, owned by the National Trust.
