First load of stones - Buckfast abbey

Record Number: 103187
A photograph of a group of monks and young helpers with a horse and cart loaded up with stones for the building of the church. When the present monks returned to Buckfast in 1882, they were able to uncover almost all of the original foundations and rebuild the Abbey in the architectural style of the mid-twelfth century - effectively restoring the original Cistercian abbey. .
