The final picture in this short series of Croxden Abbey near Uttoxeter shows a close-up of three of the arches in one of the ruined wall.
When the Dissolution of the Monasteries took place in 1538 the community here signed a deed of surrender which ended their right of tenure at the abbey and the building slowly fell into disrepair and ruin after they left.
Today a road runs through the middle of the grounds and there is a small farm there also. However it is well worth a visit and with good lighting at the right time of day I am sure some very strong pictures can be taken.
Further pictures in 360 degrees panoramas are available at http://www.bbc.co.uk/stoke/360/croxdenabbey/index.shtml should you wish to look at them.
A bit of light relief for tomorrow!
