About Cerne Abbas

Within a National Landscape lies the Cerne Valley, through which flows the ten-mile long River Cerne, meandering through Cerne Abbas on it’s way to join the River Frome. Cerne Abbas is a small village with a big personality and a long history. It grew around the Benedictine Cerne Abbey, which was founded in AD 987 and dominated the area for over 500 years. In 1539, the abbey was destroyed by Henry VIII during the Dissolution of the Monasteries, leaving behind only the abbey guesthouse, the abbot’s porch and St Augustine’s Well, believed to have been blessed by the saint.

Thankfully, in the centuries that followed, Cerne Abbas thrived as a small market town particularly famous for brewing. The area’s underground water contributed to the production of a high quality of beer sold as far away as London and the Americas. At one point, the village boasted 14 public houses. Today, three pubs remain along with a wealth of stunning historic houses and cottages dotted throughout the village. A shop/post office, tea room and modern village hall also serve the local community, the spirit of which is evident in the events organised in the village throughout the year. In June, Cerne Abbas Open Gardens is particularly popular and, in July, Cerne Abbas Music Festival hosts classical artists of world renown.

No profile of Cerne Abbas would be complete without mention of the area’s most famous resident, the Cerne Giant. A 180-foot male nude carved into the chalk of the hillside, the giant is widely believed to be an Iron Age fertility symbol, perhaps due to evidence of Iron Age settlement in the surrounding area. Scholarly opinion now suggests, however, that the figure is more likely to date from the 17th Century, as no records of him exist from before this time and it is thought that such a depiction would not have been tolerated by the monks of Cerne Abbey.
