Bath Abbey occupies the site of a Norman cathedral begun around 1090 which fell into ruin towards the end of the 15th century; the Norman cathedral itself occupied the site of a Saxon Abbey which dated from 757 AD and was destroyed shortly after the Norman invasion of 1066. This in turn occupied the site of a Roman temple to Minerva.
The interior features a magnificent fan-vaulted ceiling which dates from the early 16th century.
The abbey is the last great English church dating from the mediaeval period.
