Malmesbury Abbey Interior

Malmesbury Abbey was founded in 676 AD and completed in 1180 AD. Malmesbury Abbey is a fine example of late and local Romanesque architecture.

When Malmesbury Abbey was built, stone vaulting was just being introduced, and Malmesbury seems to have been designed to have a stone vault. One remarkable feature of Malemesbury Abbey is the plain stone facade which rises above the altar.
