The Nave, St Alban's Abbey, 1846
Artist: Buckler, William Albert
This is a watercolour of arches and windows found in the nave at St. Albans Abbey. Although the site has been a place of pilgrimage for over 1,700 years, the present building was originally constructed in the 11th century. It has been re-built and refurbished at various times in its history, most significantly in the 12th and 19th century. The romanesque-style nave is notable on account of its extreme length.
