009.08 All that exists now are the remains of the Church. Founded in 1128, & is considered a good specimen of Norman Architecture. The great thickness of the walls enabled it to withstand the frequent burnings to which it was subjected, by the English, but in the year 1545 it was battered down with Cannon and reduced to its present state, by the celebrated Earl of Hertford.
