Barking Abbey Ruins

This stunning east London filming location is steeped in local history.

The site of Barking Abbey was founded in 666 AD and later restored by King Edgar in 970 AD. During road works in the 1900s the Abbey foundations were discovered, and the site was subsequently excavated to reveal the ruined foundations you can see there today.
