A lavishly-illustrated new book on Romsey Abbey ‘Romsey Abbey – The Grand Tour’ written by Brian Lamb, a guide and a steward in the Abbey for some 35 years. Brian’s book divides the Abbey into sections each of which he describes in detail, item by item – their purpose, the stories behind these objects and any interesting little snippets of information about them. This is really a snapshot of the Abbey as it is in 2018. Using this book to walk around the church, you will learn a huge amount and Brian has made a particular point of noting details which will have escaped the notice of many people. The book will answer many of the questions which are asked about the Abbey by its visitors. There is so much to see and to learn about, and Brian hopes people will return again and again, always finding new things to interest them.
