Search for Abbey Once Home to Knights Templar Continues

Bisham Abbey, actually a manor house dating back 800 years, was once home to some of the Knights Templar. The Earl of Salisbury and his family also inhabited the facility for many generations, and Queen Elizabeth I was imprisoned there by Queen Mary.

Also on the property is a dovecot dating back to the 16th century. The remains of the original abbey, believed to be attached to the manor, have not yet been discovered.
