L’abbaye de Netley est une ancienne abbaye cistercienne située dans la ville de Southampton (dans le comté du Hampshire), sur la côte sud de l'Angleterre. Comme la plupart des abbayes britanniques, elle a été fermée par Henry VIII à la fin de la campagne de dissolution des monastères.
I didn’t really visit this abbey when I was dropping by due to raining. Just able to have a quick shoot on the building without went in to check it out. Just knew this building is free to enter and free parking provided. From outside, it seem like a good place to visit.
Fantastic place which is tucked away. Visited multiple times with my partner, once in particular for her graduation pictures. I fully recommend it on a sunny day as you can get picture perfect moments!
Great way to spend an afternoon in Southampton exploring some of it's fascinating history. Pick a sunny day and bring a picnic basket. The grounds are well kept, the ruins are great to stroll through and bring a camera - there aren't many places like it around Southampton. You can easily take public transit to get here, there is no fee to enter the grounds. The Abbey is also walkable from city centre (approx 45 min) so if you're in town for a few days and need something to do, this would make a perfect afternoon out.
Lovely quiet place. Get some time to put your mind in peace
This was my playground, as my Aunt and Uncle were the Abbeys Custodians during the 1960s /80s. I still have very fond memories of this place.
It's a beautiful place. Nice for picnic. Children aloud to run around and explore. In fact it's great for feeding children's imagination. Car park no large but adequate.
Beautiful. But such a crime by Henry VIII to vandalise this, our beautiful Catholic heritage.
Really nice place to come with family & friends. Very peaceful, but also good fun for playing games. Not a lot of parking but you can easily park within a few minutes walk.
Grandiose Abbey Ruins in a beautiful woodland setting. More expansive and majestic than the nearby Titchfield Abbey, 13th Century Netley still conveys a sense of its former glory, even in its current ruined state. If you're into Medieval Ecclesiastical Architecture, this place is definitely worth a visit. Netley's ruins and grounds are sizable, so if you're planning on taking the atmosphere in properly, you should account for at least an hour to an hour and a half. It's also a great place for a picnic on a sunny day...
Lovely peaceful place. Great for picnics. Small car park. Beware, they lock gates to the car park quite early.
Well-kept fabulous ruin, very quiet, peaceful & atmospheric & not all spoiled by refreshment kiosks or ice cream vans. For strollers & thinkers, not runners & smartphoners!
