Books Info:

Lost Abbey of Abingdon free pdf Abingdon Monastery was one of the largest and wealthiest in England, and dominated the life (and skyline) of the town for over 800 years. The monastery's building programme for the church rarely stopped throughout all that time! Due to the very thorough demolition after the dissolution of the abbey by Henry VIII, however, few abbey buildings remain, and the physical, as well as the spiritual and economic, domination of the abbey is now difficult to imagine.

It also aims to give a taste of the very wide-ranging activities of the abbey as landowner, employer and power in the town.
