Buckfast Abbey, Devon. Vintage GWR Travel poster by Claude Buckl

Poster produced by Great Western Railway to promote rail travel to Devon and features the splendid Buckfast Abbey. Founded in 1018, today it forms part of an active, self sufficient Benedictine monastery. The history of the abbey is extraordinary as it is the only English medieval monastery to have been restored and used again for its original purpose. Artwork by Claude Buckle.
