Text Appearing Before Image:
t trouble tolearn enough about it to understand how and why the buildings werereared. And in these restless days of hurry and strain and close com-petition in trades, and bad, cheap work, it is good to pass a quiet hour inwandering about among structures set up four or even five centuries agoby these grand building monks. The present writer had just such apleasure not long ago in the South of England, where a large group ofmonastic farm buildings stands within sound of the wash of the sea. Theyare on sloping ground, inclosing three sides of a square ; a wall, backedwith trees, forming the fourth side. On the upper level is a great barn ;a much greater, the tithe barn, being opposite it on the lower. Buildingscontaining stables, cattle-sheds and piggeries connect the two. Betweenthese and the wall opposite is a spacious yard ; across the middle is araised causeway dividing the yard into two levels. 72 CLEEVE PRIOR: SUNFLOWERS from the picture in the possession ofMr. James Crofts Powell
