Waltham Abbey Houses
Although the church is now a shadow of its former grandeur, it is still considered to be one of the finest examples of Norman architecture in the country. It also attracts lovers of Victorian art and architecture, having been heavily restored in the mid-1800s by William Burghes and Edward Poynter.
Inside the abbey one finds a splendid composition of Norman architecture, beautifully restored and maintained. Above the bulky pillars, decorated with zigzags and spirals, is a gallery and clerestory.
