During the twelfth century, great numbers of Norman abbeys and priories were founded in England, Wales and Scotland. By the mid-fourteenth century some 1,000 religious houses of varying denomination had been established. Today, less than one third of those exist in some form or other. This book explores 30 of these sites, some well known, others not, but all open to the public at certain times throughout the year. Each article comprises a colour photograph, an historical overview, and an information panel containing opening times, grid reference, address, telephone number, and web site details (where applicable).
