was founded in the twelfth century on a site occupied by a pre-Norman monastery. Parts of the church and cloister are 12th century, however, the west and north walls of the nave are 13th century and the north doorway 14th-century ornamentation. The north transept is Tudor. The footings of the chapter house can be seen to the west of the cloister, with the adjacent monk's infirmary standing almost to roof level. After the Dissolution of the Monasteries, the church continued to be used for a time by the parish, and a rectory was built into the southwest corner of the cloister.
A Sagranus Stone in the church of St Thomas the Apostle bears an inscription in the ancient Ogham Script. The Church is next to the Abbey.
