St. Nicholas Parish Church Abbotsbury

Abbotsbury St. Nicholas

The church of St Nicholas adjoins the scattered remains of the former Benedictine Abbey. The fabric of the building is mainly 15th century. The chancel retains its decorated plaster barrel ceiling (1638) and a classical style reredos with corinthian columns and pediment (1751)

Externally over the west tower doorway there is a carving of the Trinity.. As you enter through the decorated north porch there is an early 13th Century Purbeck marble effigy of an Abbot. An interesting selection of glass including a fragmented upper part of a figure of the Virgin with exquisite hands (15C) Also a Jacobean pulpit with tester with an interesting history.
