Ancient Stone Steps


It is amazing to consider how these ancient stone steps have been worn smooth over the centuries by the countless footsteps of long dead monks, priors, bishops, and other members of the priory at Bordesley Abbey. In it’s heyday, it will have been a busy, almost industrial, scene, with the many mill workers and farm workers attached to the priory going about their business. Now, just the outline remains, but, before it’s destruction, it would have made a fine picture with the red sandstone sitting warm in the evening sun.
