DENNY-ABBEY, a place in Waterbeach parish, Cambridgeshire; near the Ely railway and the river Cam, 7½ miles NNE of Cambridge. A Benedictine priory, a cell to Ely, was early founded here, and given to the Knights Templars; and a nunnery was built on the priory's site, in the time of Edward III., and has left remains.
