NARRATIVE ON PRINT - Regarding the preservation of the Arbroath Abbey 'the work was begun with the remaining transept, which was repaired in 1815, and the circular window, the 'Round O,' which had sunk somewhat in the head, was taken down and rebuilt.'

The area of the church was cleared from the accumulated rubbish of centuries. Previous to the operations of the Woods and Forests Commissioners, the floor of the Abbey Church was piled up with vast mounds, consisting of the fallen ruins, over which there had accumulated a soil, in which a number of ash trees grew. The clearing out of the area of the church was completed in 1835.
