Excerpt from Brief History of Lilleshall and Description of Lilleshall Abbey

The excavations to ascertain the buildings of which the Abbey consisted were made at the cost of His Grace the Duke of Sutherland, K.G., by request of his son, the Marquis of Stafford, who had taken up his residence at Lilleshall House, the writer having suggested them. Every research was made, so as to make it, if possible, final, and carefully measured plans were made of the whole. In consequence of the serious disfigurement of what is a very pretty place, the source of so much pleasure to the numerous visitors both from the surrounding locality and elsewhere, it was necessary to cover them all with soil again; but as it was found that the remains, from having been buried so many years, became so friable by exposure to the air, this could scarcely be regretted, the more so as the accurate drawings will best preserve the knowledge of the whole.

The objects in view in the preparation of this little book are that visitors to the Abbey may be assisted in their inspection of the ruins, and that they may know something of the purposes and uses of the buildings of a monastery and the occupations of its inmates, which have played such an important part in the history of the country, and that also residents of the locality might have some knowledge of the history of the place they live in. It was, therefore, thought desirable not to encumber these pages with too many references to authorities, but to present as accurate a picture of the past as our knowledge will permit; and if these objects are effected, the writer will be content.
