Denny Abbey

Denny Abbey – its architecture hints at its rich and varied past.

Based near Waterbeach, Cambridgeshire, the site runs a yearly programme of education events, and this year I plan to attend the above event, and also hope to attend the basketmaking course – a skill that was my own Great Grandfather’s profession that kept a roof over his family’s heads.

    Andrew,

    I just read about you in “Let Me Introduce To You.” at Geneabloggers. Started following you on Pinterest. I use Pinterest to make people aware of my blog. Have several boards on Pinterest about family history/genealogy. I’ve found another way to get people to follow me and to comment is to follow them. Good luck! You have a great blog.

    Regards, Grant Davis
