Monasteries and Landscape of the North York Moors and Wolds by Bryan Waites

Book Description

Perhaps no comparable area of England was as intensively settled by the great monastic houses as the north-east of Yorkshire, which contained Whitby Abbey, Guisborough, Bridlington and Rievaulx. However, this is the first comprehensive account of the monastic contribution to Yorkshire's development and landscape, providing a much-needed regional study for this topic. Incorporating a great deal of new material and including a comprehensive set of maps, the author considers the distribution of monastic lands, their growth, the policies of the houses and their wider influence on the area as a whole.
