Exploring Suffolk – Part 3!

After our stint at Aldeburgh, we decided to check out some of the ruins of two different abbeys before calling it a day.  The first was Leiston Abbey, built in the 12th century.  Leiston Abbey was part of the dissolution of the monasteries that King Henry VIII ordered.  After this, the abbey was given to […]
