Parish Church of St. Mary, formerly Dore Abbey

Abbey Dore, Herefordshire

The building now serves as a parish church but what is in this picture represents the transepts, crossing and chancel of a once much larger abbey church, the building of which began in 1175. The castellated tower is a later addition. This was a Cistercian Abbey with a French influence to the building design.

Great clarity and detail in the stone work. Well composed from this angle, it gives the church depth. "V"
