Weekly Photo Challenge: Unusual

Hailes'Abbey Echo

Hailes Abbey, outside the village of Winchcombe in the Cotswolds, was dissolved by Henry VIII on Christmas Eve in 1539 and soon destroyed. This lawn sculpture was created as a millenium project. The stones show the pattern and placement of the light that once fell from the cathedral’s rose window.

  1. Spectacular image and history of the Abbey and the ‘rose’ pattern. Great interpretation of this week’s challenge!


  2. Oh I love this photo…wish I would have gone to visit this spot. Darn that Henry VIII…he had so many abbeys ruined.
