is a modernised, 17th century Jacobean manor house built on the foundations of a 13th century Augustinian priory. Named after its twelfth-century origins as a monastery that fell into disrepair after Henry VIII's 1536 dissolution - remnants of that structure remain in the basement beams. Since 1965, Wroxton Abbey has served as home to Fairleigh Dickinson University's Wroxton College. This campus serves American students from Fairleigh Dickinson's New Jersey campuses and other American students studying under the British tutorial system. Independent reports of supernatural activity in the Abbey attest to it being one of the most haunted houses in England (barrels being rolled, non-existant banquets occuring in the dining room and invible animals brushing past one in the corridors). One wonders what the American University made of all this when they bought it!!
