The trip to the Abbey

I discovered Titchfield Abbey at the weekend. It is only 15 mins from where i live and i didn't realise that such a lovely shell of an Abbey is just few minutes away. It was M's idea to go; so i typed it into the ol' Sat Nav and off we went.

A chilly, overcast Spring day just lends to the atmosphere of my photos...

It was first built by monks and after Hernry V111 came to the throne, it was passed to the Earl of Southampton who 'modernised' it. He was a patron of Shakespeare and some of Shakespeare's plays where first performed at the Abbey! Amazing, i thought...
