Redwall Abbey was built following the destruction and flooding of Kotir, an ageless castle in Mossflower Woods ruled by Tsarmina Greeneyes.
The survivors of Loamhedge Abbey came to Mossflower country, led by Abbess Germaine to start anew.
The blueprints were designed by the first Abbess of Redwall, Abbess Germaine, a friend of Mossflower native Bella of Brockhall and survivor of the Loamhedge Abbey plague.
Along with the woodlanders of Mossflower and other Loamhedge survivors, the Abbey was built out of red sandstone from a neighboring quarry, with the intentions for the building to be a place of peace for all.
A Redwall Tapestry was woven in the Great Hall dedicated to Martin the Warrior. After his death, he was entombed beneath the Abbey.
While it is ordained to be a peaceful location, many times a Redwall Abbey#Warriors|warrior is called upon from the residents to combat a threat against this peace.
The residents of Redwall name the Seasons every year after some large occurrence. Young citizens of the Abbey are called Dibbuns.

The Redwall Abbey Charter is as follows:
- To be brothers and sisters of peace and goodwill while living together under the protection of Redwall Abbey.
- Forsake all unnecessary forms of violence, not only to Mossflower, its trees, grasses, flowers and insects, but to all living creatures.
- Help and comfort the dispossessed.
- Harbour orphans and waifs.
- Offer shelter to all creatures alike.
- Give clothing, warmth and food to any beast or creature that is deemed in need of such.
- Educate and learn, particularly in the healing arts, comfort the sick, nurse the injured and help the wounded.
- Take food from the earth and replenish the land by caring for it; husbanding crops, living in harmony with the seasons always.
- To honor and protect friends and brethren, only raising paw to do battle when life at Redwall is threatened by treachery and the shadow of war; at these times every Redwall creature should show courage, fortitude and obedience to the Father Abbot. The taking of another life must always be justified and never carried out in a wanton manner.
