Buckland Abbey

In the 13th century, Buckland Abbey was home to the Cistercian monks who built the Abbey and the incredible Great Barn and farmed the then vast estate.

Ince Castle

Ince Castle is named after the peninsula on which it stands, Middle English ’innis’=an island, which juts out into the St Germans or Lynher river. The land of Ince is mentioned in 1337 as being held by a tenant of the manor of Trematon from the duchy of Cornwall [that was the year the duchy was created by Edward lll ]. But it seems [from tax records etc.] that no house was built on the land until the time of the Civil War.
