Buckfastleigh, Devon, England
Buckfast Abbey is a modern Benedictine monastery in a peaceful setting on the verge of Dartmoor. A Saxon monastery stood here as early as 1018. In 1147 the monastery became Cistercian, and the entire abbey was rebuilt in stone. After the Dissolution of the Monasteries in 1539, the abbey property was sold and the abbey left to decay, but in 1882 Buckfast was reestablished as a Benedictine monastery, and as such it has flourished. Buckland is famous for keeping bees and producing its own brand of honey and Buckfast Tonic Wine.
