Fountains Abbey

Billy and I drove over into Yorkshire on Friday to visit Fountains Abbey. I have visited the Abbey several times over the years and it never ceases to impress me. Friday was no exception, the ruins looked beautiful with the colours of autumn around it.

The Abbey was founded in 1132 by just 13 monks and it grew to be one of the richest in Europe. That was until Henry VIII came along and decided it would be a good idea to knock it down!
