28 June – Margins

Designing the circular margin for the map required the use of a large, custom made compass created by my inventive and practical friend Charlie Bennett-Lloyd.   The design for the circular margin is created from drawings of Columbine, Herb Robert, Dog Rose, Meadow Cranesbill and Love-in-a-Mist.  All native plants that would have been present in the medieval period and still grow here.  The design from the outside border uses the fleur-de-lis pattern from the tiles originally on the floor of the priory nave.
