The Abbey, Charlton Adam in Somerset, UK is an irregular two and three-storey late 16th century house probably incorporating pre-Reformation work, which was restored in 1902 for Claude Neville of Butleigh Court, probably by C.E. Ponting, who also restored Lytes Cary in the same parish. The house takes its name from the fact that it was the site of the Chantry Chapel of the Holy Spirit, founded in 1237, of which some fragments may be incorporated. The interiors contain some Elizabethan panelling 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 Heritage as a grade I listed building. [cite web | title=The Abbey | work=Images of England | url= | accessdate=2008-01-16]
