The Abbey at Last
Benedictine Monks had a community on this site in the 10th Century beginning a tradition of daily prayers that continues until today. It has been the Coronation church since 1066 and the present church was built by Henry III in the 13th Century.
During WW2, it sustained some repairable damage and it lost a lot of its stained glass windows due to the force of the bomb blasts.
Next time, some details of the Abbey. There is so much photo material here that you could seriously wear out your camera.
As you can see, we had fabulous weather, too. About 22C with sun and a breeze.
