Southwest Florida Region: A Trip Through History, Literature, and Stately Homes
About those abbeys . . .
Where did the hundreds of abbeys in England come from? Vicky Hinshaw will lead a colorful visual tour of abbey history. She will review the power and prestige of the religious orders and what happened when Henry VIII seized their property. And we will learn how abbeys were transformed into country houses, schools and famous gardens. Hinshaw is a popular speaker and Regency romance author.
