Pleasure of Ruins / 9 Wenlock Priory

A post resulting from some banter with Meg (of Morsels and Scraps)  and also Jude (of Under a Cornish Sky) ….time to get this series going again.

I have searched high and low for previous posts I thought I had done on Wenlock Priory, Buildwas Abbey, and Haughmond Abbey to no avail.

So, here is Wenlock Priory in four photographs….alas, I can’t provide much information ….I know this was the first part I saw:

..then  the scale of the place in it’s heyday begins to become evident:

I do love a good arch to provide a frame:

……and this is what is left of the 12th Century Chapter House, the walls decorated with interlaced arches in elaborate patterns:

  1. I love abbey ruins, and I love the photos in black and white. Nicely done. 🙂

  2. An interesting series of shots. So full of character and charm.

  3. Those places invite us to reflect to the wisdom of our ancestors and their love for the well-done work. 

  4. Lovely photos of these on-my-doorstep ruins. The ‘period’ edit well suits them.

  5. This is a really cool place. Excellent photos.

  6. The church was so wealthy at the time, those buildings must have been awe-inspiring to the local peasants.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  7. There is something about ruins in mono, you tend to see more, lovely captures 🙂

  8. They are lovely images, Sue. Did you pop in on Tish? 🙂 🙂

  9. Lovely in sepia and the ruins speaks of spectacular architecture. Just beautiful.

  10. A ruin g Irving infinite pleasures. Who’d swap it for a nondescript glass skyscraper?

  11. It is fantastic as a ruin, imagine it in its time – Much Wenlock is such a tiny place. Love all these images, but the second one really does show the scale of the building.

  12. Ruins are a great theme to work with. They conjure up images of the past and inspire people to write stories. Thank you for your inspirational post, Sue!

  13. Looks amazing! I am sure there was a lovely one near Nottingham that I used to go to but can’t think of it’s name???
