More about this scene


Caption for Abbey Dore, Dore Abbey c1965: Like many abbeys and monasteries up and down the country, this former Cistercian monastery was dissolved in the reign of Henry VIII. Part of it was torn down immediately and what remained soon used as a glorified shelter for farm animals. It was restored by the 'Good Lord Scudamore' and re-consecrated in 1634. The restoration of the roof required the wood of 204 Herefordshire oak trees.
