Dicks and Their Churches Part Two

Richard, earl of Cornwall edition.

Richard, earl of Cornwall founded and paid for the building of Hailes Abbey in Gloucestershire, UK.

There is also a small parish church located next to the abbey, which is covered in medieval wall paintings that relate to Richard and his extended family.

Please enjoy! All photographs were taken by me back in 2006.
