After the dissolution of the monasteries by Henry VIII, Burton Abbey was one of the very few that was not destroyed.Over the next two centuries, it gradually fell into disrepair and disappeared as its stone was pillaged for other building work.By 1718, this too had become dilapidated and unsafe and it was decided to demolish it and build a replacement.The architect and builder William Smith, and his brother Richard, of Tettenhall were appointed by the parish vestry to build the new church.Smith had already worked on the impressive Saint Mary’s Church in Warwick and had built the church of Saint Alkmund in Whitchurch, Shropshire which was of very similar design.He was one of the most experienced church builders in the Midlands.Personal ads for Burton, MI are a great way to find a life partner, movie date, or a quick hookup.
