Take a look at this prewar British family's photo album from my collection. Every photograph is dated 1925 or 1926. Some have the town name as well. They are riding a BSA outfit and another motorcycle that is a V-twin with solid wheels. I havent figured out what it is yet Anyway . How cool would it be to follow in their footstep (or tire tracks) and see some of the sites that they saw.
There is no sound so put on you favorite prewar song and enjoy a turn through time.
Our 1121 Abbey has remained a ruin since Henry got grumpy.
But the dissolution was also a means of increasing the wealth of the King. All of the fine stone was sold off, as was all the lead. However loads of buildings in the town have chunks of stone from the Abbey, a couple of churches dating from that period also have used the stone for repairs.
