Evesham Abbey, Worcestershire

Benedictine Monks

Not a vast amount remains of Evesham Abbey. It was founded in 701 but nothing of this original building remains.  What is left today is mostly from the 12th to 16th Centuries when it was a Benedictine Monastery.

The most striking feature is the beautiful campanile with its superb exterior tracery which was built around 1539.  Nearby stand the remains of the 13th Century chapter house and the almonry which is now a museum (and tourist information centre).
