Waltham Abbey

View of the nave of Waltham Abbey, England, mid 12th century. The abbey is contemporary with the nave of Durham Cathedral, and in fact looks quite similar. The stone for the construction was probably imported from Caen in Normandy, a common practise in Norman times, (though not the case in Durham, where the stone was local).
