Canonsleigh Abbey, founded around 1170 by Walter de Claville, was established for Augustinian canons. By 1284, the canons decreased to seven, and in 1285, it became a nunnery. The abbey possessed Netherton, Farway. During the Dissolution of the Monasteries in 1539, the abbey was suppressed. Remaining structures include a 15th-century gatehouse, ruins, and remnants of buildings.
