St Benets Abbey

By Dwaller
St Benetís AbbeyThe Abbey of St Benet at Holme lies deep in the Broads, 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, and is the only monastery in England which was not closed down by Henry VIII Ė the Bishop of Norwich is still the Abbot.

As well as being of great historical interest, St Benetís Abbey is also very atmospheric. For over 200 years it has been a favourite spot for artists, photographers, and tourists.

Looks a wonderful place, there must be some good metal detecting in the area? Fascinating that it escaped Henry 8th and his crew, bravo to that.
