St Benet’s AbbeyPosted June 29th, 2018
Boat trips from Fairhaven Garden to St Benet’s Abbey during July with a 45 minute guided tour of the abbey.
The surviving ruins and earthwork remains are very interesting, it was the only Norfolk monastery founded in the Anglo-Saxon period which continued in use throughout the Middle Ages.
As well as being of great historical interest, St Benet’s is also very atmospheric. Standing in the depths of Broadland, away from roads, it is a wonderful place to spend time surrounded by the wide open skies on the edge of the river.
