Quarr Abbey

Just on the outshirts of Ryde you can find Quarr Abbey. Its home to Benedictine Monks but you're welcome to drop in, have a cup of tea in the gardens, visit the chapel on a Sunday (when I took this shot if you notice the cars!) or just wander around looking at the architecture.

The original Quarr Abbey dates from 1132-1536, wheres the 'modern' Abbey dates from 1901-2004.Visit the Quarr Abbey web site for more information.

View Quarr Abbey @ Google Maps.
You can clearly see the whole Abbey and gardens in this picture.
