Engraver: Basire, J.
Medium: Aquatint with etching
View of the ruins of St Mildred's Covent. The convent is named after an Anglo-Saxon Saint Mildred, who became the local saint of the Isle of Thanet. A community of Benedictine nuns were established here. The Normans also built Minster Abbey on the Isle of Thanet which housed the site of St Mildred's Tomb. This view shows the gatehouse still standing and the walls and tracery of some of the monastic buildings.
