Bordesley Abbey

Bordesley Abbey

Bordesley Abbey was an abbey near the town of Redditch, in Worcestershire, England.

The abbey's foundation has been attributed to Queen Maud, and it was once an important local ecclesiastical centre, holding political control of the ancient township of Tardebigge. However, the abbey's importance waned once its control of the area was taken from it in the disestablishment.

The ruins are now an archaeological site, undergoing investigation by the University of Reading's Bordesley Abbey Project.
