The Broads, St Benet's Abbey Ruins c.1931

More about this scene


Caption for The Broads, St Benet's Abbey Ruins C1945: A yacht in full sail races past a well-known landmark on the lower Bure, pulling its dinghy behind. A motor cruiser chugs its way along the north bank. Little remains of the Benedictine Abbey except this gateway, though traces can be found of the foundations (known by marshmen as groundsels) of the boundary wall and of a cruciform church. Here Sir John Fastolff, of Caister Castle, is buried.
