Description

This is the definitive account of the restoration of the Cistercian abbey at Holycross from it’s then ruinous condition in the late 1960’s to it’s reopening in 1975 as a restored abbey and parish church.

The author Willie Hayes who was the inspiration and driving force for the restoration kept detailed diaries and took hundreds of photographs throughout the duration of the works and the book is as much a social history of Holycross and the people who worked on the abbey as it is a history of the abbey itself.
