Cirencester Abbey

Cirencester Abbey

£0.60

It’s 900 years since King Henry I founded the Augustinian Abbey of St Mary in Cirencester. It replaced a pre conquest/Saxon church that also continued in use until the new Abbey was dedicated in 1176. During 2017 look out for Abbey 900 events that are to be staged in Cirencester. I have painted this picture to commemorate the issuing of orders by Henry I to begin the building work. I am hoping to follow it up with a MERRY ILLUMINATIONS image of the Dedication service. If time allows!! This image could be produced as a giclee print for dedicated followers of Abbey 900 Cirencester. Contact me for details if interested.
