A casual walk around St. Augustine’s Abbey ruins on a windswept mild day. This is where St. Augustine brought Christianity to England around 597, and it was a thriving monastery until the reformation. It raises awe and wonder in me to stand amidst ruins of a place rich in history that had significant influence on the course of the future of Christianity.

Canterbury’s St Augustine’s Abbey #canterbury #staugustinesabbey #englishheritage

St Augustine's Abbey, marking the rebirth of Christianity in southern England, was founded shortly after AD 597. ⠀

Originally created as a burial place for the Anglo-Saxon kings of Kent, this impressive abbey is an important part of the Canterbury World Heritage Site, along with the cathedral and St Martin's Church.⠀

Jubilee Orchard at CCCU - opened in 2012 to encourage biodiversity as part of the university's 50 years celebration. It's also a reminder of the land's history as part of the Abbey grounds (which would have been home to orchards) and the more recent orchards that were also here before the uni was built.
The Jubilee Ochard is by the Ramsey building, opposite Fynden and Thorne so right by my study area 😍
