The ruins of Leicester Abbey at Abbey Park
The abbey was founded in 1143 by Robert de Beaumont, 2nd Earl of Leicester, and grew to become the wealthiest religious establishment within Leicestershire. In 1538, the abbey was dissolved, and was quickly demolished, with the building materials reused in various structures across Leicester, including the nearby Cavendish House.
In the distance is the National Space Centre.
