An exceptional copy. 2000 Soft Cover. Magnificent photographs celebrate the history, the settings, and the graceful structures of the abbeys and monasteries that once proudly dotted England's landscape. Gaze awestruck at the incredibly beautiful Canterbury Cathedral, where Thomas à Becket suffered martyrdom; at the fortresslike Battle Abbey from the days of the Norman invasion; and at the distinctive outline of Whitby Abbey, perched high on the cliffs in North Yorkshire. Their beauty is truly a tribute to the power of the spirit.
