The magnificent 12th Century Cistercian Abbey at Buildwas, near Ironbridge, Shropshire, England

5194214863_7fcf736e96_b

Photographed by Anthony J Sargeant on a sunny summer’s day this magnificent 12th Century Cistercian abbey church is largely intact although roofless (it was closed and plundered by Henry VIII in the 16th Century Dissolution of the Monasteries). In the care of English Heritage it was notable how few visitors there were while just a few miles away Ironbridge was packed with tourists, oblivious to this gem so very close by.

Highly recommended for peace and tranquility this is a gem of Norman archicture.

Larking about on the beach – Anthony Sargeant ( Tony ) took this photograph in 1963 on a visit to Bracklesham Bay (West Sussex on the South Coast of England) when he drove down in his first car (1936 Ford 10) from South London with Barbara to see friends, Steve, Mark, and Bob  who were working at Bracklesham Bay Hotel during the summer vacation.
