The Remains of Tavistock Abbey

A number of buildings scheduled as Ancient Monuments remain to mark the old Abbey. The most picturesque is Court gate, an archway leading from Bedford Square to Guildhall Square.

It houses an antiques shop and the oldest private library in Devon. The arch was the main entrance to the Great Courtyard of the Abbey.

A section of the cloister walling still stands in the Churchyard, and other parts run along the side of the River Tavy, including the Still Tower where medicines were distilled.
