SU5406 : Titchfield Abbey

taken 15 years ago, near to Titchfield, Hampshire, Great Britain

Titchfield Abbey.
Titchfield Abbey.
The abbey was founded in 1232 but was demolished in Henry VIIIs "Dissolution of the Monasteries". The three-storied Tudor gatehouse remains, and with its impressive battlemented turrets, is still a very remarkable ruin. Henry VI was married in the abbey (to Margaret of Anjou) and Charles I had his final night of freedom here too.
