Eleven arches and no roof

Henry’s men made a real hatchet job during the dissolution of what was one of the wealthiest Abbeys in England in its day. This is a view that until very recently was obscured, almost completely, by trees. I was high above Fountains Abbey on one of the main paths to the Abbey where the National Trust has cleared and re-opened views that haven’t been seen clearly for a long time. Well done the N.T.
