Abbey Church of St. Mary the Virgin


"A Grand Gothic Church"

The history of Sherborne Abbey dates back to the year 705, when it served as a Saxon Cathedral for more than 250 years, and subsequently as a Benedictine abbey until 1539. The origin of this perpendicular style structure is traced around the middle of 16th Century, and its distinct architecture is a unique example of its kind. Among the wonderful features of the church, the most distinct are the fan vaultings which virtually covers the interior of the church. The intersections and the roof is marked by medieval carvings that show traces of Italian Renaissance and has been revered by artists across the world. Dedicated to St. Mary the Virgin, the church is open throughout the year and hosts weekly prayer service and other religious events. Call or visit their website to plan a visit to a historic place of worship.
