The Watton Society
Visit to Wymondham Abbey
As part of its summer programme of outings twenty three members of the Watton Society visited Wymondham Abbey for an evening guided tour on Wednesday, 18th July. Our guide was waiting for us at the Abbey door and when we were all assembled he told us about the fascinating history of the Abbey. This was followed by a walk around the inside when our guide pointed out interesting windows and sculptures, amongst many other things.
After very enjoyable refreshments we carried on our tour outside, looking at the layout of the grounds and the herb gardens. The old and new buildings have been beautifully blended together. How lucky we are to have this wonderful building so close to Watton.
