Pershore Abbey Church, made of golden coloured stone, now sits surrounded by green parkland and in the sunshine it glows with a radiance that hints at how exceptional the full abbey must have been.  Shortly after the Abbey was relinquished by the last abbot in 1539 the church was saved by the people of Pershore who raised £400 in funds and bought it for their own use.  The church was restored in 1864 by Sir George Gilbert Scott. There is some lovely Victorian stained glass to be seen including one that reveals the history of the abbey created by Hardman and Co.
