Last Friday I was invited to visit the Vale Royal Abbey,
If you never been there it’s a place to go to especially if you are into a golf… but if you are you probably know it already.
One of the ball rooms that was empty, next to our event room looked amazing in the lights of falling down sun of the late afternoon. So I had to gab this shoot. because it was a bit dark and I had only my iPhone and no lights been switched on the image you can see is a bit grainy. However I hope it gives you the sensation of the place…

Below you may see some googled images of the place… so you can see it yourself why it will be a good place to go to…
Vale Royal Abbey is a medieval abbey, and later a country house, located in Whitegate, between Northwich and Winsford in Cheshire, England.
The abbey was founded in 1270 by Edward I for monks of the austere Cistercian order. The king intended the abbey to be on the grandest scale, however, financial difficulties meant that these ambitions could not be fulfilled and the final building was considerably smaller than planned. The project ran into problems in other ways too; the abbey was frequently grossly mismanaged, relations with the local population were so poor as to result in large scale violence on a number of occasions and internal discipline was frequently bad.
Vale Royal was closed in 1538 by Henry VIII as part of the Dissolution of the Monasteries. Much of the abbey, including the church, was demolished but some of the cloister buildings were incorporated into a mansion by Thomas Holcroft, an important government official, during the 1540s. Over subsequent centuries this house was considerably altered and extended by successive generations. The building remains habitable and contains surviving rooms from the medieval abbey, including the refectory and kitchen. The foundations of the church and cloister have also been excavated. It is a scheduled ancient monument, and a Grade II* listed building
