St Bennet’s Abbey, on the Norfolk Broads is the only monastery in England to survive the dissolution of the Monasteries by king Henry VIII.  The abbey on the north bank of the river Bure was founded on an island site surrounded by marshes around AD 1020 and is now in ruins.

The surviving feature of the medieval monastery is the 14th-century gatehouse.

In the late 18th century a drainage mill was built, incorporating part of the medieval gatehouse. To allow the mill sails to rotate the upper floor of the gatehouse was removed.

The site is now managed by the Norfolk Archaeological Trust but the church ruins are still owned by the Diocese of Norwich and it is still a consecrated site.

In this picture I have tried to depict the windswept, wide open sky of the broads, and this ancient survivor on what would once have been an island before marshes were drained.
