Fountains Abbey

We had a ton of fun exploring the remains of Fountains Abbey and were lucky enough to be able to do so on a beautiful sunny day. Once a full, working monastery (from 1132 to 1549), all that remains of the Abbey now is the basic structure. However, the architecture is still stunning and it was amazing to see how intricate the work was even long before modern technologies. After leaving the Abbey, we were able to walk along a pathway surrounding the rest of the land which led us to a beautiful water garden. The water garden was at the end of the creek running through the property and was stunning. There’s not much to say about such an extraordinary place other than to post pictures. See for yourself…
