St. Benets Abbey

Recommended Posts

As a Broads landmark, St. Benets Abbey is a well known landmark, but does anyone have a picture or description of it as a complete structure, and what it represented. Just being inquisitive really.

You could argue that without the Abbey who controlled the peat digging we wouldn't have any broads. :wave:bow

Hiya Martin,

Thanks for that, it makes a good read, and well worth the time. I also posted a similar question to this, on another Broads site, and again received some good imformation. So, the next time I pass the Abbey, I'll look at it in a different light.

Regards

Baz

Baz! it looks really nice with all that Scaffolding around it now, looking at it I think it's now closed to the public as there are notices saying no entry, hopefully they are just restoring it,,,

This is supposed to be what it originaly looked like in 1327 Baz but I can't find anything further back, the mill itself was built much later sometime in the 18th century,,, some good info here Baz,,,,

Hiya Frank,

Actually, I think the picture is basically the same as the one Adnams Girl supplied a bit earlier. To be honest Frank. I was surprised at the amount of history attached to it.................and the Ariel view of it is exceptional considering the year it was taken lol.

Nice to hear from you Frank.

Baz cheersbar
