Beaulieu

Beaulieu Abbey is one of England's best-known tourist attractions - the family seat of Lord Montagu of Beaulieu, and of the National Motor Museum. But it began its life eight centuries ago as an abbey of the sheep and cattle-farming Cistercian order of monks. The site occurs throughout THE FOREST, and is the scene of a romance between a monk and a Forest woman in 'Beaulieu'. (See also Bucklers Hard).




 

 

 

Did You Know?
Hard to believe, but this month of April is the 50th anniversary of the 'official' break-up of the Beatles. This author was a very timid young student at Cambridge then. But the far more worldly and talented guy who had the room across the corridor from me had a lovely girlfriend who worked for John Lennon; and one day they scooped me up and took me to Lennon's house at Ascot. The white house with the white piano. Lennon himself wasn't there, but all the same . . . Fifty years later, that day is still so vivid
