All Saints Church, Dale Abbey (2)

Recent Photograph of All Saints Church (2) (Dale Abbey)

The description on the British Listed Buildings website suggests the right hand (west) side of the building was the Verger's Farm. The site also suggests that whilst the history of the chapel is uncertain, it may have been the infirmary, and infirmary chapel to the Abbey. Certainly it seems more than a coincidence that the Abbey Ruins are close by, as is the case elsewhere, for instance at Flaxley, and Hailes Abbey, in Gloucestershire, where the connection between Abbey and Church is documented.
