NARRATIVE ON PRINT - This picture presents a good view, from outside, of the chancel, the vestry, and south transept of the Church. The building which appears close to the wall of the Church—a vinery in the garden of the Abbot's House—has been taken down since the drawing was made in 1880. The plan of the improvements which have lately been carried out in this locality embraces the removal also of the cottages which appear to the left hand in the picture.

With the consent of the Crown, the Corporation, in carrying out their improvements about the Abbey and the Abbey Green, removed a heap of earth which had covered up the lower courses of the Chapter House walls, the only remaining fragment of which building, with the exception of those foundations of the walls, is the interesting pillar locally called the 'Pint Stoup', from a certain general resemblance of the ruin to that utensil.
(Notes by George Hay, 1883)
