Wymondham Abbey was founded in 1107 by William d’Aubigny ‘Pincerna’, butler to Henry I, to serve as Benedictine monastery with attached parish church.

Henry IIIV ‘dissolved’ it in 1538; the monastery became quarry for local builders, the church remained intact for Wymondham parishioners. Although still referred to as an abbey, it is fact a simple parish church.

  3. I like the mirror effect of the three windows over the three arches with the big arch over them all. Nice!

    I’m wondering about “Hunry I” though? Is this an alternate spelling for Henry I?
