Whitland  Abbey

I am trying to prepare drawing of the Cistercian Abbey. Other than a few corner stones and column bases it has completely disappeared. Sad as it is an important part of Whitlands History and Heritage

The drawings below are speculative. They are based on Archaeological surveys beneath ground level conducted primarily by Dyfed Archeology around 1994 so are accurate in that respect, but above ground the drawings are based on reliable information and documentation. It seems the Cistercian’s had a particular set of rules regarding the layout of the rooms and areas within the Abbey which I hope to explain as I progress the drawings. I am open to any comments or constructive guidance about the drawings and the Abbey
