The town derives its name from Grey Abbey, a Cistercian foundation located on the north side of the town, dating from 1193. The site of the abbey was on the Ards Peninsula, seven miles from Newtownards, at the confluence of a small river and Strangford Lough.. Architecturally it is important as the first fully gothic style building in Ulster; it is the first fully stone church in which every window arch and door was pointed rather than round headed.
