Turf Fen Mill

Today Arleta and I went to Turf Fen Mill, where we found 2 drainage (?) mills. We took a few nice pictures of them 🙂


Edit: Today (04.03.2014), just after my work, I went to Turf Fen again. I arrived about 20 minutes befor the sunset and I took a few amazing IMO pictures. The weather was amazing – no wind, nice clouds, time just before the sunset.

Pictures to be found on the second page of this post here 🙂 Continue reading Turf Fen Mill

St Benet’s Abbey – Panorama 360° x 180°

*** Pictures and Panoramas below ***

The Abbey of St Benet at Holme lies deep in the Broadland of East Norfolk, close to the meeting place of the rivers Bure and Ant. This was the only Norfolk monastery founded in the Anglo-Saxon period which continued in use throughout the Middle Ages – the only comparable ones in East Anglia were the royal abbeys at Bury St Edmunds in Suffolk and Ely in Cambridgeshire. However St Benet’s, unlike Bury and Ely, was largely abandoned after the closure of the monastery in the 1530s, because of its inaccessible location.

The buildings have been thoroughly demolished except for the gatehouse and the wind pump later built onto it. The surviving ruins and earthwork remains are very interesting indeed, however. Visitors can see how the site was laid out, while much important evidence remains below the ground. The Trust bought the main part of the site from the Crown Estate in 2002, and the gatehouse and mill from the Diocese of Norwich in 2004.

As well as being of great historical interest, St Benet’s is also very atmospheric. Standing in the depths of Broadland, away from roads and other settlements, it is a wonderful place to spend time surrounded by the wide open skies and away from the modern world. For over 200 years it has been a favourite spot for artists and photographers. Continue reading St Benet’s Abbey – Panorama 360° x 180°
