The Abbey, Charlton Adam in
Somerset, UKis an irregular two and three-storey late 16th century house probably incorporating pre- Reformationwork, which was restored in 1902 for Claude Nevilleof Butleigh Court, probably by C.E. Ponting, who also restored Lytes Caryin the same parish. The house takes its name from the fact that it was the site of the ChantryChapel of the Holy Spirit, founded in 1237, of which some fragments may be incorporated. The interiors contain some Elizabethanpanelling and reused earlier bits and pieces. The northern part of the house was damaged by fire in the 1960s and plainly restored. It has been designated by English Heritageas a grade I listed building.
