Abbey

Remains, once home to the 6th largest monastery in England, the Abbey was subject to dissolution during the reign of Henry VIII, resulting in its substantial destruction. The only significant remains that stand today are the 15th Century Bell Tower, the entrance arch to the old Chapter House, and the Almonary. The marked grave of Simon de Montfort, who dies at the Battle of Evesham in 1265, lies close to the Bell Tower. The remains are located within the aptly named Abbey Park, which lies next to the River Avon. During summer, this can be a pleasant spot, and is sometimes host to events such as small funfairs on the neighbouring Crown Meadow ('Party in the Park'), and music at the park's bandstand.
