Shaftesbury Abbey

Shaftesbury Abbey remains. A little museum and audio tour of the site. Built by King Alfred in 888 with his daughter, Aethelgifu, becoming the first Abbess. Bizarrely I’d never heard of a cresset stone before the other day at Sudeley, but specifically discussed in the Abbey commentary.
