Abstract:
Study of a tile type named after Westminster Abbey where they were first recognised. Now sourced to a workshop in the Farringdon Road and found in locations from Canterbury to Staffordshire the question of whether their distribution represents the movement of tiles from a fixed point or the work of itinerant tilemakers is explored. Characterised as poor quality, large tiles made of a distinctive type of clay, the `Westminster' tilemakers' product was widely employed in monasteries, parish churches in the Greater London area and castles such as Kirby Muxloe (Leicestershire) and Baginton (Warwickshire). Over 160 designs were produced and the provenance of each design, together with the plain-glazed examples, is given in a catalogue. There are French and German summaries and a note on:
