Abbey Garden

Abbey Gardens sit behind Abbey House (the Mayor of Winchester's official residence) and is a public garden. The gardens were once part of the site of St Mary’s Abbey, once one of the largest religious houses in England.

*** Am on holiday & have scheduled these posts, back mid August ***


  1. It was always incredibly busy when I went there - you were lucky to get a shot like this. Was it early in the morning? Sometimes I bought a roll and sat there for lunch - or very occasionally, fish and chips from across the road if my son was with me.

  2. you're right its very quiet. i think it was in the morning.

  3. How beautiful ! I have pictures of "The long man of Willmington".
