The English Wikipedia article about the Abbey mentions the construction of a church in the 1850s, and the closure of the Abbey in 2019.  There is a photo showing part of the church, including a stumpy tower that does not appear to hold any bells.

Where this work lies in the sequence of output of the Taylor bellfoundry, in this region and in the world.
