Carrying on the “where I live theme” this is where we went on bank holiday Monday. Granted it is fancy and I will do a more everyday one next, but, we love it here and being a National trust property we get in free as we are members. Its not far away either so we have been known to go after dinner in the Autumn when the buildings are floodlit and there is Gregorian chant music being played. Spooky and atmospheric
It lends itself nicely to black and white photos. Its falling down a lot now as most of the masonry has been robbed out for other purposes, barns dry stone wall and even a staircase in this manor house also on the site.
My friend was recently married here
There are gardens adjoining the Abbey with grand lakes and follies. Much of it is being refurbished at the moment and one huge lake where we had hoped to feed the ducks was totally drained and in the process of being refilled, it was going to take all week!!
I hope that you have enjoyed my pictures, its well worth a visit if you are in the area.
Were you right Mrs Twins? Did you guess correctly?
Happy weekend to all of you, we are off to Newcastle to a Doctor Who exhibition. I actually quite like them, I am up to 4 now!!!!
Hugs and cheerio's
