The Abbey Church, Waltham Abbey

Waltham Abbey,Essex,UK view map

NB:Often wrongly called Waltham Abbey.The Abbey was destroyed in 1538,at the Dissolution of the Monasteries,what remains is the Abbey Church.
Christians don't believe in Astrology but the Victorians,when replacing the ceiling in this church,painted all the signs of the Zodiac along the ceiling.
In the graveyard,is the supposed resting place of King Harold,loser of the Battle of Hastings,which saw the arrival of William and The Normans.see http://www.bbc.co.uk/essex/content/image_galleries/waltham_abbey_boards_gallery.shtml?6
