North West View of Middleton (Milton) Abbey in the County of Dorset : S. & N. Buck

click here to view a large version in a separate window

A fine and detailed view of Milton Abbey. Today it is a public school, but a fascinating and detailed historical note beneath the view explains, that this was originally a monastery built by King Athelstan as an atonement for the death of his younger brother. The exact succession of owners is given, plus many other details. Capability Brown was only 17 when this view was produced, and so it predates his work on the landscape. This print was published in 'Antiquities, or venerable remains of above four hundred castles, monasteries, palaces etc. in England and Wales', published in London between 1726 and 1752.
