Severely damaged in the Fire of London in 1666, it was patched up between 1668 and 1671. A steeple was added around 1700 to the designs of Sir Christopher Wren. It was built in a gothic style sympathetic to main body of the church, though with heavy string courses. It has a needle spire carried on four flying buttresses. The church was largely destroyed in the World War II and the ruins now form part of a public garden.

Rievaulx Abbey OP07620
Rievaulx Abbey, North Yorkshire, 1850-1910. Unknown photographer, albumen print. The ruins of Rievaulx Abbey, the first Cistercian abbey in the north of England, have been a tourist destination since the 18th century. In the Victorian era photographers were also drawn to record the picturesque, ivy-clad ruins. By 1917 these were in danger of collapse and Rievaulx Abbey was taken into the care of the Office of Works. Sir Charles Peers, Chief Inspector of Ancient Monuments, caused controversy by clearing the site of vegetation and establishing the principle of presenting historic monuments in neat, tidy, unobstructed settings.
