Sherborne is a lovely town with many sights to impress the visitor, not least its abbey which dates from 988 and is one of the main attractions. The abbey is a superb example of Perpendicular architecture, noted for its magnificent fan-vaulted roof in both nave and choir.
Some of the former domestic buildings also remain in the nearby Abbey Close and just to the east is the well-preserved Abbey Conduit, the lavatorium or washing-place of the monks, that formerly stood in the cloisters.
All in all, a great day out!
