Photographer's Note

The first photo of the Fountains Abbey which I showed you a couple of days ago, probably made you think that it is just one of numerous average abbeys which were devastated in England in a consequence of Henry VIII Brexit. But believe me, it is not just any abbey. This is already my fourth photo from this magical place but I feel I cannot really show the beauty of this place. I strongly recommend you to go and see it yourself if you only get a chance.

I have spent there most of a day. The light has changed so much during the day and it reached various areas of the ruins. This window was nicely lit by the evening sun.

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

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.
