As the sole surviving monastic fishery building in England, it stands as a testament to the region's medieval past and offers us a glimpse into its rural charm. Nestled amidst an idyllic countryside landscape, this enchanting structure served as both the residence for Glastonbury Abbey's water bailiff and a hub for fish-salting and drying activities. Its historical significance cannot be overstated, as it provides invaluable insights into the lives of those who once inhabited these lands. The image captures a general exterior view of Meare Fish House, with an inviting gate standing prominently in the foreground.
