Collins guide to the ruined abbeys of England, Wales and Scotland

£6.99

Product description

Collins guide to the ruined abbeys of England, Wales and Scotland by Henry Thorold. Published by Harper Collins 1993. Hardback with dust jacket in protected cover. In very good condition.

No comparable guide exists - or has ever existed - to the visible remains of the vanished world of monks and nuns throughout the length of Britain. Henry Thorold has spared no pains to track down the most remote or improbable sights, whether it be, as so often, down a track off a lane in the grandest, wildest parts of England, Scotland or Wales, a car-breaker's yard or a supermarket car park in a busy town. Of course all the famous abbey ruins, Fountains, Rievaulx, Tintern and the others, are here and superbly described by an expert, but an expert with a fresh eye for the agreeable inconguities that time has bought. . The evocative photographs by Peter Burton and Harland Walshaw were taken on their travels with the author.
