Visiting Buckland Abbey

National Trust - Buckland Abbey




 







 

 























 

Some of the staff and volunteers around the Abbey were in costume, which was nice to see.  Plus there was a demo going on in the kitchen, giving an idea of what was cooked back in the day.
















The great barn at the Abbey





The best part for me was seeing their original Rembrandt

  2. Awesome architectural details, but what a gem finding the original selfie. I vaguely recall hearing a news story about that within the last month or so.

    1. Definitely does. When I walked into the Rembrandt exhibit, the lighting was very low - I was met with a woman in costume, perfect. I asked her if she made people jump, she said she did once, a woman and child hadn't noticed her move for a few minutes, then she moved, and they jumped. Hilarious, I told her she should do that more often, what a laugh, I would have too much fun doing that if I were there dressed up!
