tewkesbury abbey oil sketchA couple of years ago there was severe flooding here. The Abbey was left dry on a small island of its own. A visit to Tewkesbury Abbey is a must. If you live anywhere else in the world and you are visiting the UK, you must visit this town and this Abbey. It has an amazing history, and the interior is the absolute best of Norman architecture.

Abbey Mill is on the right in this small oil sketch on board, Swilgate in the foreground and the abbey fading into the autumn mist, with the sun trying to break through.

Judy and I were staying in an 18th century weaver's cottage just behind the cottage on the river bank. We had several days here so the next few posts are all from here.
