This pamphlet, 65pp long, recounts the history of Gilling Castle from its building in the 14th century to the year 2007. It makes fascinating enquiry into a number of aspects of the Castle, including who actually built it, whether the stained glass has always been where it is now, what is behind the panelling of the Great Chamber and its role supporting Catholics during the penal days. Many of our readers willl be most interested in the final chapter on its use as a school, it is illustrated throughout with orignial photographs not just of the present building but of archive material never seen in one place before.
Christmas Opening: The Abbey Shop will close for the Christmas holidays at 4pm on Saturday 23rd December, re-opening on Monday 8th January 2018.
May we wish all our customers a Happy & Peaceful Christmas and New Year and thank them for their support throughout the year.
