My last Our World Tuesday post was on Farham Castle, well after my wife & I visited Waverley Abbey which you can see in the link but I thought I'd share a few other photos from the place as well.
Not sure many people take much notice of this which is still an important part of out history of the second world war. A type 22 pillbox
This is the inside of a loopholed wall which is a defensive position near
This large type 28 pillbox. The whole area has many more pillboxes which lay forgotten like these.
On the way to the abbey you can see this bridge which crosses a pond and leads to Waverley Abbey House
And this is the House which was not open on the occasion we were there
The Abbey or the ruins of them
The abbey ruins as you come up to them along the path
I took this just before we left the place, it's the gatehouse cottage to the old house estate, place looks a bit derelict at the time
Nearby is this old disused bridge I doubt anyone notices, it would have taken people into the estate at one time. So there you are, a few photos from places round the old abbey.
