Fantastic news! The Friends of St Benet's Abbey have been awarded £26K from @heritagelotteryfund for the St Benet's Abbey: 1000years! project thanks to money raised by #NationalLottery players! There will be a pageant, some larger-than-life willow sculptures, a History Discovery Day and exhibition! Want to join in? Please email
St Benet's Abbey can be reached on foot from Ludham Bridge, about a 30 minute walk from the gate opposite the Public Toilets. Cyclists may use the byway, a concrete track accessed from Hall Road at Johnson Street. Cars may also use the byway but parking on site is limited. For boats there are plenty of free 24 hour moorings.
Why not become a Friend of St Benet's Abbey (£5.00 per year)?
Wildlife photos taken on site can be seen in the Galleries Section.
