About Lilleshall Abbey
Lilleshall Abbey was founded in about 1148 for a community of Augustinian canons. By the late 13th century, it had become a religious house of great reputation and prestige.

The buildings were severely damaged in the Civil War during a Parliamentarian siege, but the extensive sandstone remains still give an impression
