ABSTRACT
In 1992 Holy Trinity church at Buckfastleigh in Devon was burned out in an arson attack that left only the masonry surviving. The loss of the ancient parish church deeply affected the local community, but it also made possible new archaeological investigations which have revealed the site of the original Anglo Saxon monastery at Buckfastleigh.
