Description
Bath Abbey stands at the heart of the city of Bath; during the past twelve and a half centuries, three different churches have occupied this site: an Anglo-Saxon Abbey Church dating from 757, pulled down by the Norman conquerors of England soon after 1066; and a massive Norman cathedral begun about 1090. It was larger than the monastery could afford to maintain and by the end of the 15th century was in ruins. The present Abbey church founded in 1499, ruined after the dissolution of the monasteries in 1539 by order of Henry VIII, was completed in 1611. --http://www.bathabbey.org/visitors.htm
