Denny incorporates the well-preserved remains of a 12th-century Benedictine Abbey, still featuring Norman interiors. Over the centuries the abbey has also been home to the Knights Templar and Franciscan nuns and was later transformed into a farmhouse. This attraction now combines with the adjacent Farmland Museum.
At the height of its influence in the Middle Ages, Ramsey Abbey was one of the most powerful and wealthy monasteries in England. The superbly carved 15th-century abbey gatehouse is the most visible reminder of this bygone wealth. The gatehouse stands at one end of a wide green, giving access to Ramsey Abbey School, which now occupies the abbey site. The exterior of the gatehouse is wonderfully carved, with oriel windows and detailed decoration. Abbey School, School View, Ramsey, Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire, England, PE17 1DH
