Abbey Close is the crescent of land adjoining Sherborne Abbey. It consists of private houses and some offices and a shop connected to the Abbey.
The lawn is surrounded by seats and tubs which have been planted by the Gryphon School pupils.
The seats and planters provide a beautiful quiet garden where visitors to the Abbey can sit down and enjoy the view.
Abbey Close is a peaceful, delightful space in our busy market town!
