The Old Abbey, Swaffham Bulbeck
This site was once occupied by a Benedictine nunnery (not an Abbey), but that closed in 1535 and the building seen here is a country house ca. 1778 with later remodelling. There may be internal traces of the medieval structure (Victoria County History). The Frith collection has a similar view ca. 1955 LinkExternal link - the building has not perceptibly changed.
