DESCRIPTION

Standing on the edge of a delightful Gloucestershire market town, a stone's throw from the River Severn, Twekesbury Abbey is one of the finest and grandest examples of a Romanesque church in Great Britain. As well as its massive central tower, unspoilt nave and beautifully vaulted chancel, the abbey boasts at its east end a unique 'chevet of chapels', the legacy of generations of artistic benefactors. This new guidebook explores the building area by area, as well as covering the monastic heritage, the powerful medieval families and dramatic historical events which have all contributed to make the abbey what it is: one of the most visited churches in Britain.
