Description of Pershore Abbey

The church as it now stands represents only a small portion of the original building, so has a rather foreshortened appearance. The exterior is dominated by a lofty tower and transepts that look exceptionally large without a long nave to balance their height. Large modern buttresses support the west side of the church.

Entrance is through the south transept, with leads under the tower and then into the chancel, which is now the nave of the parish church. The chancel has fine Gothic arches and side aisles, with dramatic rib vaulting everywhere. The nave/chancel vault has some splendid roof bosses, most of foliage but a few with Green Men hidden among the leaves.
