Heritage Open Days 2018

Each year for Heritage Open Days, the Abbey conservation team put together an exhibition of rarely seen items from the Abbey's fascinating archive.

Open Treasury

Behind the medieval door at the top of the Abbey’s Night Stair is a small room call the Treasury. Come and have a look inside this normally closed-to-visitors part of the Abbey, and find out about the important role this small room played in monastic life. Members of the Abbey’s knowledgeable conservation team will be on hand to talk about the Treasury, and the Abbey in general, as well as to take you through a display of other intriguing and rarely-seen items from the Abbey’s archive.

Opening times – drop in, no booking required:


Friday 7th September 10-2

Saturday 8th September 10-2

Sunday 9th September 11-1


Please note: The Treasury is at the top of the Night Stair – a long flight of steps, uneven in places. We apologise that this in not accessible for people with restricted mobility but images will be available at ground floor level.
