To bring photos from my minds eye - to the public through the lens of my Nikon D90 ∧ D80
They are such interesting places and I wish I could be there sometime. Your blog is very cool and I also add your link into my blog.CheersDSM
Those are stunning photos! What a beautiful place!I LOVE water mills! We have the oldest water mill in the U.S. in my town; I will post a photo soon so you can see it. =)Sorry for my absence... it is school vacation here because of the holiday and I've had a houseful of happy commotion for the last week! =)
Is this the place where the infamous Buckfast Wine is made?
Oh my this place is beautiful.
That water-wheel is huge and beautiful. Do they still work the mill?
Imac,I found this to be so interesting of the Abbey, i had to do a search of it. I love churches and especially churches from the old country. I wanted to see the inside of the church so if anyone else is interested here is the website for ithttp://www.buckfast.org.uk/site.php?use=stillsThanks for the kind words on my blog. I have so enjoyed your blog that its too hard to stay away. Will take me many weeks and month to catch up here when i leave for vacation. But i will.
I have just read an article about the development of mills of various sorts - among them the water mill driven ones. It was very interesting to see such a big one "live". The only one of this size I have ever seen was at a museum in Denmark. They could deliver(according to their times)"tremendous power". Do you happen to know if it is till in working order? (If I know anything about the English and their sense for conservation - it probably is)Beautiful church - and you have a lot of them!Thank you for your own kind words!
Hi Imac, I got your message on my Skywatch so here I am, obeying orders,lol. Seriously though,the pictures of Buckfast are lovely.I see Old Wom Tigley refers to the infamous Buckfast wine! I rather liked it when I tried it years ago!
And the wheel goes round and round.
Yep, Buckfast Abbey is famous for its wine and also mead.I know the water wheel goes round and works, but dont think the mill is in opperation now.??
The water mill? I never saw that when I visited. I stayed on reatreat with the monks for 3 days, a beautiful place.Quick SnapThis I Do...
They are both beautiful. I really like towers for some reason.
Nice shots, I'll be visiting Buckfast on my next trip to UK, I hope.
Beautiful photos!Wonder what's now inside of the Water Wheel Mill? I kind of doubt it's still a mill. But it certainly must be in use.When I first read ~ I thought you said Water Wheel Mill Inn! Sometimes I like it when I misread. I wanted to ask you if you had any pics of inside! :-)Mari-Nanci
