I'm completely blown away! Took a break from the studio to have some lunch, I thought I'll have it facing some greenery somewhere. Remembered that this has place opened, but wasn't ready for this.
It's an amazing transformation and I can't believe it's on my doorstep! Gorgeous cafe, formal room for afternoon teas, shop opening in a few days, abbey soon to open to public and beautiful setting for weddings. I sound like an advert, but I remember first coming here with the family 6-8 years maybe more ago for an Easter egg hunt. Looking at it we thought, cute cafe but this place has so much potential. Even chatted to the Friends about their conservation plans and said I'd be interested in a studio if it ever materialised.
Well, fours years in the making and it's just super, well done @delapreabbey! #cafe #gardens #northampton #delapre #delapreabbey #restoration
