An original(i.e. from the date given and not a later reprint) circa 1835 beautifully finished print from steel engraving entitled :-


Engraved by W Miller after the work by the Artist, Thomas Allom

A lovely, and active scene at this still lovely priory

The wonderful detail in this beautiful print is not really captured by the scan.

The prints in this range vary slightly in size, but on average measure 155 x 95 mm ( 6 x 4 " ) approx. plus borders (not fully shown in the scan).

It is on good quality paper with a blank reverse.There are a few handling marks and some light staining or foxing (brown spotting) which is a feature of items of great age. This print which is over 170 years old, would look superb mounted ( or matted ) and framed.

Some more information.......

Consecrated in 1169 and built of stones plundered from nearby Hadrian's Wall, this monastery which was home to monks of the Augustinian order was completed around 1200. Lanercost is a major, and substantial ruin. King Edward I was a visitor in 1280, then in 1300 and again in 1306 at which time he fell ill and remained over the winter with an entourage of about 200, somewhat depleting the Priory's already limited resources. The priory was attacked by William Wallace in 1296 and 1297, by Robert the Bruce in 1315 and extensively damaged in 1346 by King David of Scotland. These frequent attacks impoverished the Priory, and much of its land had to be sold to fund the much needed repairs. One of Lanercost's most interesting legacies are the Lanercost Chronicles, written by the resident Canons, translated by Sir Herbert Maxwell. At the Dissolution in 1536, the Canons were removed and everything of any value was seized by the Crown. The building, however, was bought by Sir Thomas Dacre, of Naworth Castle,who converted it into a private house. The chapel is part of the original priory and is still in use today - off the beaten track, but surprisingly easy to find and access - much worth a visit.
