Burnbam Abbey 26b
Artist: Dickson, Mr.
Burnham Abbey is one of the most complete monastic ruins in Buckinghamshire. It was founded in 1266 by Richard Earl of Cornwell as a house for Augustinian Canonesses. After the Abbey was dissolved in the 16th century, the estate and abbey building were leased to the Wentworth family. As this picture shows, by 1788, the abbey buildings had fallen into ruins. This view is of the west side of the abbey.
