St Benets Abbey gatehouse at dawn

The 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 – the Bishop of Norwich is still the Abbot. As well as being of great historical interest, St Benet’s Abbey is also very atmospheric. For over 200 years it has been a favourite spot for artists, photographers, and tourists.

Very atmospheric pictures with the river shrouded in mist and the golden glow over the ruins of the Abbey. These drones certainly bring us some fantastic shots from viewpoints we never used to see. Excellent, thanks for sharing them on PoE.
