Description

Westminster Abbey West Towers - 5x7 London Greeting Card by Mark Tisdale.

This London greeting card features the Westminster Abbey West Towers. These old Medieval Gothic churches are truly the work of generations. King Henry III had the old Abbey church pulled down in 1245. The West Towers, however, weren't completed until 1745! There had already been restoration work done on other parts of Westminster Abbey in the intervening years. Even by Medieval standards that is a long time even for a building as grand as this one. That is to say it was not an active construction site for all those years.

I think one of the bigger achievements is that Westminster Abbey looks cohesive. The succession of builders that worked on the Abbey respected the original plans and each addition or restoration was made in an effort to be sympathetic with what had come before. And while the Abbey looks beautiful from all directions, it's the West Towers of Westminster Abbey that most caught my eye. The way the towers reach towards heaven, the rich details and symmetry. It's an amazing sight to see in person which I hope is captured in the image on this London greeting card. If you need a sense of scale, look at the people on the sidewalk going towards the entrance!
