Fountains Abbey

Been away for a few days and one of the places we visited was Fountains Abbey. The Abbey was founded in the 12 century by monks who felt the life they lived in the rich Abbey of St Mary's in York was too comfortable. They decided to travel out of York and search for a place to start a new life that would bring them closer to God.


  1. They found themselves another beautiful place!

  2. No doubt Hery VIII thought them too rich and decided to have it for himself. Great picture
