Abbey Close

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.
