Bath Abbey is a former Benedictine monastery in Bath, Somerset founded in the 7th century, since which time it has undergone significant reorganisation and rebuilding. The church architecture is cruciform in plan and can seat up to 1,200 patrons.
The abbey is a Grade I listed building, particularly noted for its fan vaulting. It contains war memorials for the local population and monuments to several notable people, in the form of wall and floor plaques and commemorative stained glass. The church has two organs and a peal of ten bells. The west front includes sculptures of angels climbing to heaven on two stone ladders, representing Jacob's Ladder. This painting captures a tourist enjoying the South West front of the Abbey on a sunny day.
