ABBEY DORE
Dore Abbey, now known as St Mary’s Church.
Herefordshire
England
Medieval
Dore Abbey was a twelfth century Cistercian foundation, its church (minus the original nave) now being known as St Mary’s Church. Thirteenth century inlaid and impressed tiles found during the 1902 restoration of the church were re-laid in the chancel and around the font; the inlaid tiles have heraldic motifs, while the impressed tiles appear to have designs unique to Dore Abbey
