Vox Humana Posted September 22, 2011 Share Posted September 22, 2011 I hope this isn't a daft question, but what is the latter day ecclesiastical history of this abbey? When I was there a couple of months back, I saw historical placards both inside and outside the abbey stating that it was dissolved in 1790 and subsequently used as the town hall, but neither mentioned anything about any subsequent use as a church. Google hasn't been any more forthcoming either. There must have been some reason for providing the Cavaillé-Coll organ and completing the west front, and the chairs in the quire area would suggest that services are held at least sometimes. Is it used as a parish church? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
