Sherborne Abbey, Sherborne, Dorset

Sherborne Abbey was formerly the church of a great anglo-saxon monastery and during Henery VIII's time the monastery was finished and this became Sherborne's church.

Today you can see parts of the original saxon church in the abbey's facade, but by far its most striking feature is the 15th Century fan vaulted ceiling.  Some of the other original monastery building are now occupied by Sherbourne school, founded in 1550 and one of England's top private schools.
