Art Print Description:
This rambling old church pictured here is known to locals simply as The Abbey. Despite the moniker, St Albans Abbey is actually a cathedral of the Anglican church. It is known officially as The Cathedral & Abbey Church of Saint Alban. There’s a long religious history in St Albans going all the way back to Roman times when Saint Alban became the first British martyr. His shrine at St Albans Abbey was once a stopping point for pilgrimages in Britain.
I really enjoyed wandering around St Albans Abbey as it’s beautiful inside and out, which should be apparent from this picture. It’s also an incredible amalgam of historic architecture. If you look about midway back in this photo, you’ll see some architecture that looks much different from the facade. That section of the abbey is actually all that remains of an older medieval Norman Abbey built in 1077.
Meanwhile the rest of the church is a very romanticized gothic revival structure from the 19th century. Reconstruction of the old abbey was funded by a wealthy benefactor who was more concerned with his vision than historical accuracy. Although I like historical accuracy, the Gothic fantasy is quite beautiful in its own way and certainly far preferable to wandering through scenic ruins today!
An added bonus while I was taking photos of the church was the sky. It was streaked with clouds and as you can tell the church was bathed in a great golden light. But in the right hand of this St Albans Abbey print, you can see some sort of atmospheric phenomena. It looks like the sun reflecting off the clouds, but I’m not sure what the source was? But when I saw it, I just that I had to frame this photo in such a way to include it. A sun dog of some type perhaps?
Whatever the source of that dramatic sky, it makes for quite a unique print doesn’t it? And it was q quite a memorable note on which to depart St Albans Abbey and that picturesque village. It took me several trips to Britain to discover this historic community only a short ride from London. But I hope to wander through there again some day. It simply whetted my appetite.
Have you been to St Albans Abbey? Or perhaps you have a family connection to this beautiful church or the community there? I’d love to hear what attracts you to this scenic St Albans print?

It was my father’s birthday present. Thank you Mark. It brought back wonderful memories for him.
Received the print today! It’s gorgeous! I really can’t thank you enough.
I’ll frame it and hang it in my apartment in NYC as soon as I get back.
I ordered a framed print of the Macon County Clinic and Nurses house . My mother… worked there from 1956 until the clinic closed. Now 80 and retired for many years , she often talks about the many people she remembers from those days, My brother and myself were all born and treated there by Dr. Fred and Dr. Tom. We thought the framed picture would be something she would get great joy from and probably stir a few memories. It is a beautiful artwork and looking forward to seeing her face when she gets this gift on Christmas. Thanks for the Great GIFT!!
…thanks to Facebook and finding Mark E Tisdale, a special print will become a memory in my parents’ home this Christmas…
I just concluded my ordering of 11 metal prints of your Atlanta images.
Thanks for your help and artistic talents!
Best part of my day = getting my prints in the mail!!!!!!!!! Yahoo!!!!!
Absolutely delighted! They are perfect!
Received my red phone box cards today. Thank you – they are lovely. Look forward to purchasing from you in the future.
Originally I purchased these cards to give for Easter, but they are so beautiful I decided to frame and keep them for myself.
Mark Tisdale’s work is excellent.
The cards are very high quality. Images are sharp and colors are vibrant!
The print is absolutely breathtaking! I immediately went and had it framed, I just couldn’t wait to display it.
I’m excited to show off your work to my friends and family. You are one of the most talented photographers I’ve seen and it’s a pleasure to own your work.
I framed the picture of our house and put it under the tree for Sid.
He loved it!
I got my print today, thank-you so much.
I love it!
I love my “Toomers Drugstore” and “Auburn Supper Club” prints from Mark. He does an amazing job and every painting has detail and awesome colors. His Auburn prints are a must have for fans that love Auburn as much as I do!
…it is a surprise for my daughter when she comes home from college.. …and I can’t wait for her to see it!!
Nice surprise for her finishing her first year and doing amazing!
Just wanted to let you know, for Christmas, my sister got me a GIANT photo from you of the mountains and sheep in Connemara (Ireland).
It is really beautiful and I love it. Gotta have it matted and framed next.
The Lighting in this print is stunning! Thank you!
I treated myself last year to two of your lovely works of art. The telephone box & the Scottish cottage on a country lane. Love them!
Yes! I got my tractor print in the mail today, and I love it! It is beautiful. It is vibrant and ….perfect… and I am going to frame it and hang it asap! I love it. Thank you Mark! You are an amazing photographer.
It’s simply beautiful! The colors are so vibrant and powerful.
Got my print today – Beautiful! Thanks! : )
Can’t wait to get it framed and on the wall.
I took the photograph of the house to be framed and the young lady who helped me choose the mats and frame was so taken with the photography that she asked for your name so she could see more on the web.
If you hear from an Erica I want a commission!
My daughter sent me this print as an early Mother’s Day gift. It arrived today and I love, love love it!
DeAnn just called me so very excited, she received the picture. She thinks it’s just beautiful.
Thank you so much and I’m sure you will be hearing from her too.
I just dropped it off at the framing shop on Friday and had a look at it…. it’s absolutely beautiful. I purchased it to replace a painting of Paris and to be honest the way that you have captured Dublin on the river at night makes it look more beautiful than Paris. Beautiful photo, you are very talented.
Love it… the print arrived today and looks awesome!!
Now I just need to get a suitable frame and get it up where it can be enjoyed.
Unlike a purchase from a big box store, your print purchase from this site directly supports this artist. Thank you for making a difference!
