Excerpt from A Cotteswold Shrine: Being a Contribution to the History of Hailes, County Gloucester, Manor, Parish and Abbey Could Stephen Sagar, last Abbot of Hailes, revisit the beautiful scene once so familiar to him and to his brother, who now He side by side in a far-off Yorkshire village churchyard, the sight of his Abbey would scarcely make him desirous to linger there. For, with the exception of some broken portions of the south wall of the Church and merely a shell of the Cloister, together with some of its doors, the House he ruled has vanished. The Shrine with its renowned Relic went already during his own lifetime, as also did the five bells and the lead from the long roofs. But now even the chevet of pentagonal chapels, which formed a graceful crown above and around the 'Shrine of the Holy Blood, ' can only be traced below the soil. It is level almost with the coffinless skeletons of Princes, Abbots, and noble Knights, whose tombs have been violated and ransacked at the Dissolution. But there, at least, the spade has discovered the complete foundations (as the plan subjoined shews, ) and almost as clearly the mental eye can re-construct it, together with its elaborate groups of buttresses formed of the golden oolite from the neighbouring hills.

Book Description Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. Excerpt from A Cotteswold Shrine: Being a Contribution to the History of Hailes, County Gloucester, Manor, Parish and Abbey Like so many Abbeys, Hailes has been used, time out of mind, as a convenient stone-quarry; and the antiquary, and the wild birds that yearly nest in the remains, may be duly thankful that it has not been absolutely deleted. That it has not been, will be the part-purpose of the following pages to shew. In this respect, at least, it has certainly fared far better than its more ancient neighbours at Winchcombe or Evesham, though less well than either Tewkesbury or Gloucester.
