Warden Abbey...
We had a simply amazing long weekend with Ben and Sarah staying in the Landmark Trust's Warden Abbey. We got almost smoked out by the fire, wandered into an abandonded railway tunnel which we then struggled to get out of and from the start prepared to repel all-comers from the battlements. Here are some pictures from our stay (click for larger versions).
The Abbey itself. Or what's left of it Basic but comfortable. The evil fireplace from billowed smoke The master bedroom The attic
Whistler's Mother? Walking off a liquid lunch The tunnel Sunset in Bedfordshire
This looks like an album cover Don't ask... The battlements Bless!
