Anglesey Abbey, Gardens and Lode Mill, Cambridge, England

Anglesey Abbey has over 900 years of history for you to explore.

Dating back to 1135 as a hospital, it was converted into an Augustinian priory in the early 13th-century, until its dissolution by Henry VIII in 1536. The ruins of the priory form the core of the present house which was built in the early 17th-century. The house’s subsequent inhabitants did little to change the structure of the house, except for Rev. John Hailstone, who demolished the surviving medieval outbuildings to build a stable block in the mid-19th-century. There are also gardens which include Lode Mill, a watermill which dates back to the Domesday survey of 1086, though the mill which you can see today dates back to the 18th-century and has been restored to full working order. Freshly ground flour from the mill can be bought at the shop in the Visitor Centre. As well as a shop, there is also an outdoor kiosk serving takeaway hot drinks and snacks.
