Fountains Abbey - 2

The setting of Fountains Abbey is truly glorious.

The dramatic Abbey ruins at Fountains are the largest monastic ruins in the country.

Set in the naturally beautiful Skell valley, flanked by two vast expanses of lawned grass with awe inspiring cliff faces to either side and the river Skell running through the valley and under The Abbey - which in itself is a masterpiece of twelfth century building ingenuity - this truly is a beautiful place to visit.

Soak up the spiritual atmosphere, lose yourself in the passages, staircases and towers or marvel at this unique relic of ancient architectural craftsmanship.
