Angelsey Abbey is a country house formerly a priory, in the village of Lode, 5 miles northeast of Cambridge. The house and its grounds are owned by the National Trust and are open to the public, although some parts remain the private home of the Fairhaven family. The historic working watermill sits on QUY Water and the park is varied with statuary and both formal and informal planting. The winter garden is famous for its snowdrops and is well worth a visit for its textures and colours all year round.
