This was one of the wealthiest and most influential Benedictine abbeys in England, holding the relics of the local saint, Edmund. The Benedictine monks are known to have been in the area since the 11th century. Daniel Defoe, writing in the early 18th century, noted that "the abbey is demolish'd; its ruins are all that is to be seen of its glory".
