One of a series of engraved views, begun in 1800 with the encouragement of Martin Routh, President of Magdalene College, Oxford. The first was an engraving of Lincoln Cathedral; by 1814 the series included all the English cathedrals and many major collegiate and parish churches. From around 1810, John Buckler's son, John Chessell Buckler (1793-1894) assisted his father in producing a vast number of drawings; J C Buckler's son George (1811-1886) later became involved in the enterprise also and in 1822, J C Buckler published the 'Views of the Cathedral Churches of England and Wales', for which he wrote a text and in which he incorporated his father's engravings.
