About this photo

We have entered the abbey at the west - this sequence of views goes from west to east, starting in the nave. Henry III's abbey replaced the Norman one started by Edward the Confessor. Edward's choir, crossing and transepts were complete at his death in 1066, but all was swept away in the 13th century. The pulpitum or screen behind the altar is mainly 1828, and the monument in the left recess is to Isaac Newton.
