‘Westminster’ tiles – named after Westminster Abbey where they were first recognised – are among the most common medieval floor tiles found in London and were widely used at various ecclesiastical and aristocratic sites in south-east England. Easier to fire and lay than lead-glazed mosaic floor tiles, ‘Westminster’ tiles were being mass produced by London tilemakers by the 1260s. A separate centre in the Midlands manufactured tiles decorated with the same designs. Over 160 designs were produced, and this MoLAS monograph includes an illustrated catalogue giving the provenance of each.
