Abbot's private rooms, Haughmond Abbey, near Haughton, Shrops
In this area were some of the abbot's private rooms which became more and more comfortable as the centuries went on. At the far end is the bay window. In the final years of the abbey in the early 16th century, two of the last three abbots appear to have let standards slip but the last abbot, Thomas Corveser, seems to have brought things back to an acceptable level. At the dissolution in 1539 he received a generous pension.
