Royal Visit at Milton Abbey

The visit was attended by the Lord Lieutenant, the Chairman and Chief Executive of North Dorset District Council, and a small group of invited guests. The Earl and Countess had come to see the historic setting and to hear of our project to save the life of the Abbey Church and its sublime setting.
