Fabulous ruins of Buildwas Abbey close to the Shropshire home of Anthony Sargeant photographed on a sunny summer’s day. The consequence of Henry VIII’s dissolution of the monasteries beginning in 1536 the ruins of the Cistercian Abbey are now maintained by English Heritage. Highly recommended if you in the area. Ironbridge is always full of tourists but the Abbey just a little distance away upstream close to The River Severn is never crowded.
