This Victorian manor was built in 1845 and is Grade I listed.
A Cistercian monastery stood on the site from 1143 until it was destroyed on orders from King Henry VIII in 1583. Around the 1600s, a country house existed which was bought by Joseph Banks in 1711 and gained the name ‘Banks Abbey’. When this property fell into disrepair, some of the materials were used to build the current house.
American Airforce used the abbey for accommodation in the 1950s, as did RAF personnel in the 1960s.
Sir Joseph Banks, the famous botanist grew up at Revesby Abbey. He sailed with Captain James Cook on the voyage that resulted in the discovery of Australia. Cook named Botany Bay in honour of Joseph.
In 1870, the skeletons of several monks were found on the grounds. Chanting is often heard.
A butler and a young boy are also believed to haunt the building.
Shadows are seen and disembodied footsteps are heard. Poltergeist activity is reported and people claim to be pushed by unseen hands.
