Overview

An interesting and informative book charting the rise and fall of England's largest Cistercian monastery.

Called 'The Wonder of the North' in 1729, the Fountains Abbey and Studley Royal World Heritage Site is one of world's most beautiful and magnificent designed landscapes.

This volume, based on 25 years' research, tells its full story, from the prehistoric through medieval times to the Victorian era for the first time.

It charts the rise and fall of England's largest Cistercian monastery and reveals the hitherto lost history and scale of the Aislabie family's Studley Royal designed landscape, and its place at the forefront of every emergent garden fashion of the eighteenth century.
