Anglesey Abbey

anglesey-abbey-161227-1Anglesey Abbey was extremely busy on 27th December.  I suspect this was partly because it was a Bank Holiday, partly an excuse to avoid the post-Christmas sales and partly an opportunity to get out of the house and exercise after the excesses of the previous two days.
