NARRATIVE ON PRINT - The Abbey Church suffered from fire several times while it was still the church of a great monastic establishment, but there is no evidence, and there is no probability, that it was burned at the reformation. The 'blinded zeal' which was directed against it was not the zeal of 'bigots,' but of rapacious people, of successive generations, who made a quarry of the gigantic ruins.

This work of destruction was stopped about the beginning of the present century, when the Crown, to whom the ruins of the Abbey Church belong, took measures with a view to their preservation.
(Notes by George Hay, 1883)
