This guide to monastic ruins in the British Isles looks at ruins that range from great buildings like Fountains Abbey and Rievaulx to the tiny fragments of obscurer priories. The book includes a history of the monastic orders in Britain as well as essays on their particular architectural styles. Henry Thorold is the author of the "Collins Guide to Cathedrals, Abbeys and Priories" and winner of the Thomas Cook Award for the best guide-book of the year.
