The Churches of Britain and Ireland
The Abbey, properly the Abbey Church of St. Mary the Virgin. © Bill McKenzie. Interior view, from an old postcard in Christopher Skottowe's Collection. And from the same collection, an old engraving of the Abbey. It's interesting to compare the engraving with this modern view. © Steve Bulman (2010). Three interior views- 1, 2, 3, the superb painted fan-vaulted roof, and a monument, all © Steve Bulman (2010). As you look at the altar, the right-hand aisle has a coin operated machine for lighting the roof. Well worth the tiny investment! Another view, two additional interior views - 1, 2, the Digby Monument, and a stained glass window, all Christopher Skottowe (2010). Link. Grade I listed.
Cheap Street Church (Methodist and U.R.C.). ST 638 165. © Andrew Ross.
Possible former(?) church. © Steve Bulman (2010). Janet Gimber has advised that this was the school attached to the Union Chapel (Congregational), which is just behind it (see below).
