Garden Photography at Woburn Abbey Gardens
Woburn Abbey, near Woburn/Bedfordshire, England, is a country house and the seat of the Duke of Bedford. Woburn Abbey was originally founded as a Cistercian abbey in 1145. Taken from its monastic residents by Henry VIII and given to John Russell, 1st Earl of Bedford in 1547, it became the seat of the Russell Family and the Dukes of Bedford. The Abbey was largely rebuilt starting in 1744 by the architects Henry Flitcroft and Henry Holland for the 4th Duke.
Duchess Anna Maria, originated the afternoon tea ritual in 19th-century England.
The art collection of the Duke of Bedford, is amongst the finest in private hands, and encompasses a wide range of western artwork. The holdings, comprise some 250 paintings, including works by Rubens, Van Dyck, Canaletto (24 paintings (View of the Entrance to the Venetian Arsenal, c. 1732 - one of Canaletto's greatest works)) and Velasquez.
