An Unexpected Excursion Part Three

Having spent plenty of time in the sun at Netley Abbey, we reluctantly dragged ourselves away in order to get to Titchfield Abbey before the gates closed.


At least there weren't many people there, with only 10 minutes in which to take photos:
Titchfield Abbey 270513 (01)


I've visited plenty of times, but this may have been the first when all the tiles were on display, rather than covered with sand. But first more stonework:
Titchfield Abbey 270513 (02)


Now the tiles:
Titchfield Abbey 270513 (03)

Titchfield Abbey 270513 (04) Titchfield Abbey 270513 (05)


Lettering on the left photo upsidedown due to the angle of the sun (it tells the canons to remember the poor before eating):
Titchfield Abbey 270513 (06) Titchfield Abbey 270513 (07)

A complete row of them (split to spare you all page width):
Titchfield Abbey 270513 (08) Titchfield Abbey 270513 (09)

Titchfield Abbey 270513 (10) Titchfield Abbey 270513 (11)

Titchfield Abbey 270513 (12) Titchfield Abbey 270513 (13) Titchfield Abbey 270513 (14)


A few more sets:
Titchfield Abbey 270513 (15)

Titchfield Abbey 270513 (18) Titchfield Abbey 270513 (19) Titchfield Abbey 270513 (20)


Rear of the gatehouse:
Titchfield Abbey 270513 (16) Titchfield Abbey 270513 (17)


Chimmeys and walls too high to fit in one picture:
Titchfield Abbey 270513 (21)


And that pretty much topped off the day, other than going home to eat M&S ice creams on sticks in the back garden
