1536 King Henry VIII faced a major rebellion called The Pilgrimage of Grace, in opposition to the religious changes being imposed by the king and his ministers. The rebels, based mainly in the north of England, were particularly keen to defend the monasteries against the government’s attempt to close them down. This talk tells the story of the struggle for Sawley Abbey in the autumn of 1536 and how close Henry VIII came to a disastrous defeat there.
