When is an Abbey not an Abbey?

When it's a priory. Such is the status of Anglesey Abbey near Cambridge. It was originally Anglesey Priory, but the owner thought that wasn't grand enough, so he renamed it Anglesey Abbey. As houses of this nature go, this one is positively cosy, and it's the sort of place I could imagine living quite happily. For the visitor the grounds offer a lot of interest and I understand this is a favourite haunt of many local people. Here's some pictures of the Abbey and of some of the Dahlias from the Dahlia Garden, which was in full bloom and looked absolutely fantastic.
