From Our Own Correspondent
The Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings is now interesting itself in the case of Rufford Abbey, Notts, for which the Notts County Council has secured an interim preservation order.
Expressing their willingness to call a public meeting of interested societies or individuals the Society states: " If the building is to be preserved a use must be found for it."
The original Rufford Abbey was a Cistercian abbey founded in honour of Our Lady by Gilbert de Gaunt, Earl of Lincoln, in 1148. Few traces of the original monastic buildings have been preserved.
