Originally a Benedictine monastery in 870, Prinknash Abbey now has an international reputation for its pottery and incense production. Affected by the dissolution of the monasteries during Tudor times, in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, Prinknash Abbey was a stately home.
In the twentieth century the Abbey rediscovered its religious heritage with the arrival of six monks who converted the building back to a monastery. In 1937 it became an Abbey.
