Narrative

    • The creation of the next levelling layer for the next phase of construction after the disuse of the earliest phase of the abbey and its subsequent destruction. This event alludes to the demolition of the abbey complex to enable the Premonstratensians to extract the worked stone to then reuse at the second site of Leiston Abbey.
