bbey Dore is a Cistercian abbey located to the south-west of Hereford of which only the chancel, crossing and transepts remain. The abbey was founded in around 1147 and was a daughter house of Citeaux, its founding monks coming from Morimond. Dore started three daughter abbeys of its own, Trawscoed in Wales, Grace Dieu (1226), and Vale Royal (1274). Only small sections of the nave and surrounding buildings exist now, and the parts that do remain serve as the local church.
Grace Dieu Abbey was founded in this year. It was a daughter house of the Cistercian abbey at Dore near Hereford. The foundation would have been earlier but the abbey was attacked and burnt by the Welsh in 1223. The abbey was situated near Monmouth, but no real remains can now be seen.
