Thame Abbey


Thame Abbey

Thame Abbey was a Cistercian abbey at Thame in the English county of Oxfordshire.

Thame Abbey was founded in 1137 by Alexander, Bishop of Lincoln. It was dissolved in 1539. Most of the building stone was removed from the site, but the Abbot's House remained standing and was turned into a country house by John Williams, 1st Baron Williams of Thame. It is currently the home of the singer, Robin Gibb.
