and now for the photo's Starting with Sunday's Selfies of me with the cider press...


So this is the 17th century Cider press at Buckland Abbey,during the Medieval period when the abbey was an abbey the cider press would have been more like these in this photo...
 now onto the rest of the property....
 The main house and formal garden..


this next one has the Abbots tower..
and the next one is the cider house...
and this is the kitchen garden.
The Abbey was converted in to the the house in the tudor times by the Grenvilles after Henry the 8th dissolved the monasteries and was then sold to Sir Francis Drake.The house stayed in the family for a while,it's now run by the National trust .Hope you enjoyed my adventure.

  12. What a cool movie! We loved watching you check out the grounds (and nomming the grass) Mom says people have woofies in the park she walks out that aren't on leashes even though it's the LAW to have them leashed.

    Ellie and Allie say thank you for stopping by their Birthday Party!
