The Abbey Gatehouse in Ramsey

The Abbey Gatehouse in Ramsey in Huntingdonshire, UK

 

Little remains of the former Benedictine Abbey at Ramsey except for a small part of the gatehouse which can be seen below and is usually accessible to the public 'free of charge' from Abbey Green where the first photograph was taken. There are some other small sections of the abbey church still in existence incorporated into the walls of Ramsey Abbey House which is now part of Ramsey Abbey School.
