A morning at Newstead Abbey, England

Originally built in 1170 as an Augustinian Priory by King Henry II, Newstead Abbey in Nottinghamshire, England is most famous for its later tenant, the poet Lord Byron, who was said to be 'mad, bad and dangerous to know'! a 19th century playa! Today it's open to the public and is still a beautiful place, even in the snow. It's most famous residents now are the dozen or so ghosts that inhabit the house and gardens!
