Cerne Abbas

Medieval houses in Abbey Street, Cerne Abbas

Home to the 180ft high Saxon chalk figure ‘The Rude Man of Cerne’ and built around a huge Benedictine abbey founded in AD 987, Cerne Abbas abounds with mediaeval history. Visit the remains of the Abbot's porch and guest house, the beautiful parish church built by the monks to serve the village, the Silver Well and of course, the 55m high Cerne Giant. The village has three excellent inns, a village shop and gift shop and the Cerne Abbas Brewery, whose tap room is open most Friday and Saturday afternoons.
