The Almonry rear

The Almonry
This 14th Century building was once home to the Almoner of the Benedictine Abbey that was founded at Evesham in the 8th Century.

Following the closure of the Abbey by Henry VIII, the Almonry became the personal home of the last Abbot, Philip Ballard, whilst the rest of the Abbey buildings were sold to Sir Philip Hoby who arranged for the quarrying of the stone.

Today, the Almonry, two churches, bell tower and cloister arch are all that remain of what was reportedly the third largest abbey in England.

A beautiful old building - well captured, Mark. V.

What a superb structure - just oozing character, and woodworm I suspect ! But if has stood this long it can shrug that off.

a very lively image for winter weather as well as interesting house

I like this view, it shows every rickety angle of the lovely old building.
