A great WordPress.com site

Would Richard have recognised this view of Westminster….?

 

Abbey of St Peter and Palace of Westminster, circa 1532

This illustration is from a report about the Westminster World Heritage Site that dates from 2007. It contains some interesting information and rather good illustrations, especially of what the site looked like in late-Medieval times. Worth dipping into.

The view above is how it is believed the abbey and palace looked circa 1532, or thereabouts, so perhaps not that far removed from the Westminster Richard would have known.

Perhaps I should add that this particular illustration is much clearer and easier to read in the actual article.
