Tewkesbury Abbey
From the east you have a clear unobstructed view of Tewkesbury Abbey. The abbey dates from 1087 and was consecrated in 1121; it is larger than some English cathedrals. It is built in a Norman or Romanesque style. 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.
