Bradwell Abbey is the site and remains of a medieval Benedictine Priory and is a Scheduled Ancient Monument (no.19062). Nationally it is significant because it contains the greater part of the medieval precinct of a priory, a relatively unusual survival, with a rare standing building - a dedicated pilgrimage chapel with a scheme of stunning contemporary wall paintings.

 
 

Locally it is important because it is one of a number of historic sites in and around Milton Keynes that provide major insights into the medieval history of the area and it is an important local wildlife site. The site has a strong historic identity, providing a potential focus in the development of a sense of place for the community of Milton Keynes.
