'A wide angled view of the ancient Fish House at Meare, the only surviving monastic fishery building in England. The Abbot's Fish House (or Meare Fish House as it is also known) is situated south of the River Brue. It is a medieval stone building believed to have been constructed in 1322-1335, recently being restored in the 20th century. It is believed to have been the home and work place of the chief fisherman of nearby Glastonbury Abbey and was also used for the salting and preparing of fish. The adjacent earthworks of ponds may possibly pre-date the fish house since the Domesday Survey of 1086 records the presence of three fisheries and ten fishermen at Meare. Today only the faint outlines of the fish ponds remain around this building after the pool was drained in the late 16th Century.Similar images:'
