Tavistock Abbey, also known as the Abbey of Saint Mary and Saint Rumon, is a ruined Benedictine abbey. Nothing remains of it except the refectory, two gateways and a porch. The abbey church was destroyed by Danish raiders in 997 and rebuilt under Lyfing, the second abbot. Lyfing and his successor Ealdred both became bishops of Worcester, and the latter is said to have crowned William the Conqueror. The 39th abbot, Richard Banham or Baynham, was made a lord of Parliament by Henry VIII in 1513.The church was further rebuilt in 1285 and the greater part of the abbey between 1457 and 1458.
