Restored medieval abbey on Broads opens in Norfolk

A medieval abbey on the Norfolk Broads is being opened to the public following a £500,000 restoration project.

Langley Abbey, on the Wherryman's Way, has been restored thanks to English Heritage, Natural England and owners Chris and Rebecca Townsend.

It was founded in 1195 and housed up to 20 canons before being dissolved in 1536. The site is enclosed by a moat.

Visitors will be able to see the Abbot's private chambers. It opens on Wednesday but is closed on Mondays.
