The Abbey was founded as a Benedictine Monastery in 1083 on the site of an existing Saxon church. After the dissolution of the monasteries in the reign of King Henry VIII a large part of the building was destroyed however the remaining building has continued to serve as a Parish Church. In the Abbey ground you will also find ‘Symmetry’ –  a memorial sculpture to the war poet Wilfred Owen who was born in Shropshire.
