The ruins of Hailes Abbey are a National Trust Property in Gloucestershire, a few minutes drive from the headquarters of the Gloucestershire Warwickshire Railway in Toddington. A Cistercian Abbey, it was completed around 1250, but was a victim (like nearby Evesham Abbey) of the Dissolution of the Monastries and was shut down in 1539. Demolition occurred over the next couple of centuries, leaving the ruins seen today. Although owned by the National Trust, the site is managed by English Heritage.
I have made two visits to Hailes Abbey, in October 2009 and April 2015. Most of the photographs in this collection are from the second visit; I could perhaps have replaced all of the 2009 photographs, but in the end I decided to keep a few, perhaps mainly out of sentimental reasons, although perhaps these do provide some comparisons, especially relating to how my photography has changed in 5 and a half years. The second visit has also resulted in changing the collection order to a location-based one, working on a clockwise spiral starting outside the site entrance, and finishing in the Cloister.
