Founded in 1246 and once a celebrated pilgrimage site, this Cistercian abbey now lies in ruins due to its demolition in the sixteenth Century under the reign of Henry VIII. Hailes Abbey was once one of the more popular sites in the south of England for Mediaeval Pilgrims due to the fact that it reputedly housed a vial of Christ’s blood. Remains of the dramatic cloister arches still survive and there is a small museum that is worthy of a visit.
