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.
