Tewkesbury Abbey
The magnificent Norman abbey viewed from the south. The abbey which is larger than some English cathedrals dates from 1087 and was consecrated in 1121. The tower is the largest Romanesque tower in existence. At the time of the dissolution of the monasteries the abbey was purchased by the parishioners for 453, and became a parish church.
