The remains of Merevale Abbey, where Henry Tudor is stated to have stayed the night before the Battle of Bosworth.

An abbey was built in Merevale in 1148 by Robert de Ferrers the Earl of Derby, it was a relatively small abbey with only around 10 monks, The abbey of Merevale itself was dissolved in October 1538, during the reign of Henry VIII and fell into ruin, but some traces of it still remain to the present day. One of the most significant parts of the abbey to have survived is the Gate Chapel, which is now used as the parish church.
