    Abbey Church, Sherborne

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness


    Abbey Church and the rest of the monastic buildings were rebuilt in the fifteenth century. This brave local couple enjoys a few rays of winter sun.

    Almhouse II , Sherborne

    The Almhouse red and black tiled floors and the stone pots of flowers don’t make you think that this was once a medieval hospital.

    The beautiful Almhouse which is next to the abbey is a very photogenic medieval building. Symmetric carved arches are found in the small courtyard.

    Abbey ruins, Shaftesbury

    by munki Written Apr 2, 2005

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness


    There is not much left of the abbey, just a few rocks and a couple of isolated walls. Still the small garden based on the abbey ruins is worth a glance.

    The sun broke over Stonhenge and it was amazing! The visitor center was nice. Otherwise, Stonehenge is in the middle of nowhere.
