Anglesey Abbey

A few pictures from Anglesey Abbey

and this tree was hit by lightening on 5th July 1999, the second time in 12 years this Giant Redwood Sequouadendron giganteum was hit by lightening (or so the plaque says!)

The gardens at the Abbey are lovely, and when walking around it is as if walking through rooms with cheeky statues distributed throughout. The Abbey includes a room with 6 Pethers - beautiful pictures of the moonlight. If you do go, ask the warden to shine a torch on them and see them from a different light, literally. The windows come alive and people appear.....
