Earl Leofric builds a new Minster on the site of older religious buildings at Much Wenlock.
Leofric and his lady Godgifu found the Abbey on the site of Coventry Cathedral. Godgifu may have been the famous Lady Godiva who rode naked through the streets of Coventry to save the townsfolk from paying high taxes.
Paisley Abbey was founded in 1163 by Walter FitzAlan, first High Steward of Scotland under King David I. Monks from the Cluniac monastery of Wenlock in Shropshire populated the new foundation.
