Last Friday we went to visit a place I hadn't been to since I was teaching, in fact way before I retired!
I couldn't believe the changes. What was just a small site of mainly ruins (ideal for school trips) and a small garden is now on two sites and had a huge modern viewing gallery, museum and cafe as well a huge walled garden.
Norton Priory is the most unusual setting as an industrial estate has been built very close by, however, the woodland walk to get to the walled garden was very peaceful and the garden is amazing.
We started in the garden...of course!!
After being inside the walled garden we walked around the outside
Back to the entrance
Sadly most of the Priory is ruins, only this small part of the building is only at this low level and outside is just foundationsAbove the ruins is the viewing gallery and it extends to the newly built visitor centre
More woods before heading back to the cafe in the visitor centre..where I will join Bleubeard and Elizabeth at The Altered Book Lover for T Stands For Tuesday.
