Battle Abbey School

Henry VIII gave Battle Abbey to his sidekick Anthony Browne and Browne demolished the bits he didn't need- like the church- and converted what was left- mainly the gatehouse and Abbot's lodging- into an elegant country house. The habitable bits of the Abbey are now a private school- and you can view them from the grounds (which belong to English Heritage) but you can't go inside.
