Form 1 Trip to the Cathedral and Abbey Church of St Alban

Afterschool/EECA Senior School

Today, we went to St Albans Abbey and it was a very interesting experience for us all. We met with our tour guide and we went into the Abbey and learned about St Alban's life. He pretended to be a Christian priest so fellow Christians would live and Alban was consequently executed. He was also the first English martyr. We also saw the rebuilt shrine of Alban. As well as this,we learned that the Abbey was a monastery until 1539 and was then pulled down during the Reformation.

Thank you to our guides and all the teachers who made this trip happen.
