HA07033 John Richardson, Rievaulx Abbey Custodian and Village Postmaster689 views Here seen admitting visitors to Rievaulx Abbey in the 1930s
The old entrance was at the West end of the church - literally go down the steps into the galilee
It is unclear whether he is wearing a post office uniform or a prison officers uniform (the prison officer's uniform was standard issue for site custodians - hence the name custodians)
Money was collected in a small leather satchel slung over the shoulder; there are guidebooks, or a visitors' book, on the tripod stand.
