Lilleshall Abbey

Lilleshall Abbey

Founded in about 1148, this Augustinian abbey became a private residence after the Reformation, and was severely damanged during the Civil War during a Parliamentarian siege. It is now in the care of English Heritage.


The abbey may seem peaceful on a summer evening, but some exploring the ruins have been terrified by the sounds of agonising screams echoing through the ruins.

Abbey Road,



Shropshire, TF10 9HW.
