Photographer's Note

Good Morning Everyone,

Sunny days can give so many opportunities for lovely shadow patterns, which is exactly what happened when we visited Bordesley Abbey Museum. This was one of the gates giving access to the museum.

I will show an exterior view of the frontage as a workshop.

Bordesley Abbey was a 12th-century Cistercian abbey near the town of Redditch, in Worcestershire, England.

Bordesley Abbey was once an important local ecclesiastical centre, holding political control of the ancient township of Tardebigge. However, the abbey's importance was lost once its control of the area was taken from it in the 1534 disestablishment. It was demolished by Henry VIII during the dissolution in 1538 and the property was sold.

The ruins are now an archaeological site, undergoing investigation since 1969 by the University of Reading's Bordesley Abbey Project. Many of the excavated items can be seen in a visitor centre and museum at the site, which is joined with the Forge Mill Needle Museum.

There were some very interesting items to be seen in the museum, with documentary evidence. Great to study and absorb but not necessarily great for photographs.

The weather is still glorious here and has been over the whole Easter holidays. I hope it is good where you are.
Kind regards,
Bev :-)
