Custodians of Continuity? The Premonstratensian Abbey at Barlings and the Landscape of Ritual

By Paul Everson and David Stocker Heritage Trust of Lincolnshire

Lincolnshire Archaeology and Heritage Reports Series No. 11

In 1980 Paul Everson carried out a field study of the earthworks of the exceptionally well-preserved site of the Premonstratensian abbey of Barlings, on the remote Oxney Island, east of Lincoln. In collaboration with David Stocker, that work was to develop into a study of the archaeology of the abbey's social, economic and religious 'home estate'; an area extending to nearly 200 square kilometres north and east of Lincoln itself. In addition to detailed surveys and reconstructions of the abbey buildings, and of its fate after the Dissolution (when it was converted into a major country house), the authors have also investigated the abbey's six granges within this area, its villages (Caenby, North and South Carlton, Newball, Reepham, Scothern, Snelland, Stainton, Sudbrooke), the monastic town of Langworth and many other notable landscape features.
