Photographer's Note

How many windows can you spot here? It is a tricky question because there are also shadows on the ground. I suppose some arches are not exactly windows, one could argue.

This is one more view from the Fountains Abbey, a world heritage site. It is not even the main nave, but an area behind the main altar.

HERE you can see all photos of Fountains Abbey which I uploaded to TrekEarth.

Fountains Abbey was founded in 1132, operated for over 400 years, until 1539, when Henry VIII ordered the Dissolution of the Monasteries. It is one of the largest and best preserved ruined Cistercian monasteries in England. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
