At the time of this print Cheapside was the site of a major produce market and an important thoroughfare linking the City of London with Westminster. Cheapside actually means "market place". The first post-conquest Norman Baynards Castle was built by Ralph Baynard on a riverfront site to the east of the modern Blackfriars Bridge. It was demolished in 1213, and in 1276 the site became part of Blackfriars Priory. In the late medieval period a new mansion gradually evolved on a close-by site, now owned by the Dukes of York, which also became known as Baynard Castle. In turn this became the royal palace of Henry Vii and Henry VIII before passing to the Dukes of Pembroke and later the Dukes of Shrewsbury. The house was destroyed in the great fire of London in 1666, though some substantial ruins survived to be incorporated into later wharfs and timberyards. The site is now occupied by a BT office block. This print offers 2 views engrved by Wooding, and is supplied with the original, accompanying text from the work.

The Monks Stone, near Tinmouth (Tynemouth). The Antiquities of England and Wales was the product of Alexander Hogg who was well known as a partwork publisher. Under the claimed authorship of Henry Boswell it was issued serially from c1787-9, and subsequently made available as a complete work. The format was typically 2 (though sometimes up to 6) prints to a page, with one or two accompanying pages of descriptive text on each pair of subjects. It also included the set of English county maps by Thomas Kitchin first used in the London Magazine from 1747-54. The Monks' Stone originally stood in a field in the village of Preston, near North Shields, and was probably a boundary marker for nearby Tynemouth Priory. The stone bears a (probably later) inscription commemorating a murder, which may be a reference to a story of an incident between one of the monks and Lord Deveral. The stone has now been relocated to the grounds of the Priory where it may stilll be seen. This print was engraved by Peltro. A little spotting.

Alderton Church. The Antiquities of England and Wales was the product of Alexander Hogg who was well known as a partwork publisher. Under the claimed authorship of Henry Boswell it was issued serially from c1787-9, and subsequently made available as a complete work. The format was typically 2 (though sometimes up to 6) prints to a page, with one or two accompanying pages of descriptive text on each pair of subjects. It also included the set of English county maps by Thomas Kitchin first used in the London Magazine from 1747-54. Alderton is a small village about 6 miles noth of Felixstowe. The partially ruined church of St. Andrew is interesting and picuresque. The oldest parts of the church date from the 14th century and the tower was built in the 15th century, but apparently not very well. It progressively collapsed to its current height and state of ruination from the 17th century up to 1821. With no tower, the church bell is today mounted on a wooden framework in the churchyard. The rest of the church was restored by the Victorians. This print, engraved by Noble, is supplied with the original, accompanying text.

In 1528 work began on a new Grammar School in the town, intended by Wolsey as a feeder to his recently founded Cardinal College in Oxford. Unfortunately the school was unfinished by the time of Wolsey's fall in 1830, and most of what had been built was demolished, though the school was later refounded by King Henry VIII and survives today as Ipswich School on a different site. The original site of Wolsey's College passed into private hands, and today only one gateway of the original complex survives, known locally as "Wolsey's Gate".

Malmesbury Abbey. The Antiquities of England and Wales was the product of Alexander Hogg who was well known as a partwork publisher. Under the claimed authorship of Henry Boswell it was issued serially from c1787-9, and subsequently made available as a complete work. The format was typically 2 (though sometimes up to 6) prints to a page, with one or two accompanying pages of descriptive text on each pair of subjects. It also included the set of English county maps by Thomas Kitchin first used in the London Magazine from 1747-54. Malmesbury Abbey was founded as a Benedictine house in the late 7th centry AD, and the town of Malmesbury grew up around it. The current Abbey was constructed in the 12th century, and mostly complete by 1180. Two major collapses in the 16th century - to the main tower and the west tower - caused great damage to other parts of the fabric, resulting in the shortening of the church. After the dissolution of the monasteries the surviving part became the parish church, and continues to fulfil that role today. This print, engraved by Peltro is supplied with the original, accompanying text. A slight crease.

The Priory was founded there by St. Aidan in 634 AD, and under St. Cuthbert became a leading centre for learning and the Christian faith, producing such works as the still surviving Lindisfarne Gospels. The monks fled the island in 878 after attacks by the Vikings and Danes, but the Priory was re-established in 1093, and continued until the dissolution of the monasteries, after which the buildings decayed. The ruins are today in the care of English Heritage and open to the public. The Castle was built in the mid 16th century as part of the coastal defences against the Scots.

Caernarvonshire - Bangor Cathedral. The Antiquities of England and Wales was the product of Alexander Hogg who was well known as a partwork publisher. Under the claimed authorship of Henry Boswell it was issued serially from c1787-9, and subsequently made available as a complete work. The format was typically 2 (though sometimes up to 6) prints to a page, with one or two accompanying pages of descriptive text on each pair of subjects. It also included the set of English county maps by Thomas Kitchin first used in the London Magazine from 1747-54. The site of Bangor Cathedral was originally occupied by a monastery established around 525 AD by St. Deiniol, of which nothing today survives. The earliest parts of today's cathedral date from the first half of the 12th century, but the building was damaged or destroyed several times thereafter, with rebuilding in between. Major reconstruction occurred from c1500 to 1532, and in Victorian times much restoration was done by George Gilbert Scott from 1868. This print was engraved by Thornton.

The first castle at Caernarvon was built by the Normans in the late 11th century, but subsequently captured by the Welsh Princes when they re-took Gwynedd in 1115. Today's castle is mostly the work of Kind Edward I after his victory in the wars against the Welsh. Work began around 1183 and continued until c1330 (albeit with interruption during the rebellion of Madog ap Llywelyn), from when Caernarvon was effectively the main administative centre for north Wales. There was some decay during Tudor times, but the defences were still strong enough to withstand sieges during the Civil War of the 1640's. In the 1870's a major restoration took place, and the castle is now in the care of CADW, the Wesh Heritage body, and open to the public. This print, engraved by Eastgate, offers 2 views on one sheet, and is supplied with the original, accompanying text.

Scholars are still undecided as to their exact functions, but clearly they were built with defence in mind. This print, engraved by Eastgate, offers 6 views on 1 sheet, and is supplied with the original, accompanying text.

In 1827 the abbey church was rebuilt, and in 1839 a new building was constructed to house the friars. Further conservation and restoration to the church was undertaken in 1896 and 1973, and it contunues today to perform its original ecclesiastical function. This print was engraved by Barclay.
