Tewkesbury Abbey

 

Otherwise known as The Abbey Church of St. Mary the Virgin.  Passing by en route to Plymouth, thought it would be worth a look.

I am delighted to observe that they have not tried to graft a clock onto the tower, Tom.
Tom Wilson: A Victorian tendency, Ray - this one's a bit older smile
Elle est magnifique !

Splendid! This is a wonderful building, I have had the pleasure of visiting it many times
Tom Wilson: Yes, I think it was your pics on SC that prompted me to take a look.
I know it well and it would have been well worth the diversion!
Tom Wilson: It was indeed, Bill.
i am glad to see that you stopped to take a look, Tom
Tom Wilson: It was only a short way off the mway, so not a great diversion.
Superb Tom! Definitely worth a look.
Tom Wilson: It was, Richard.
A church that looks like a castle is of interest to be sure.
Tom Wilson: I think most of our cathedrals look like castles - there was probably always some defensive as well as religious intent smile
Fine abbey isn't it, we've passed by a few times but never ventured of the M5 to take a look.
Tom Wilson: It is, Brian - and it's only a few minutes off the M5 - AND there's parking right beside Abbey.

This impressive, cathedral-like looking church is really worth a visit inside and outside- I was there during my Cotswolds journey.
Tom Wilson: You'll enjoy the next few pics, then, Philine. I agree - very impressive.
