EDITORS COMMENTS
Rievaulx Abbey, nestled in the picturesque valley of Rievaulx in North Yorkshire, is a striking reminder of the rich historical and religious heritage of the Middle Ages. Established in 1132 as a Cistercian monastery, Rievaulx Abbey flourished for over 300 years, attracting pilgrims and monks from all corners of Europe. The ruins of this once grand abbey, as depicted in this photograph taken in 1882, offer a hauntingly beautiful glimpse into the past. The Gothic architecture of Rievaulx Abbey, with its intricate stonework and soaring arches, is a testament to the skill and dedication of the monks who built it. The ruins, now overgrown with lush grass and trees, stand in stark contrast to the clear blue sky, creating a serene and otherworldly scene. A man and a woman, dressed in Victorian attire, are seen in the foreground of the photograph, adding a sense of scale and context to the image. The mildmaid, with her parasol and bonnet, gazes out at the ruins, her expression reflecting a sense of awe and wonder. The rural landscape surrounding the abbey, with its rolling hills and trees, completes the idyllic scene. Rievaulx Abbey, now a popular tourist destination, continues to draw visitors from around the world. The ruins serve as a reminder of the rich history and cultural significance of this beautiful and historic site. This photograph, taken over a century ago, offers a glimpse into the past and a reminder of the enduring beauty and allure of Rievaulx Abbey.
