You may already have noticed that I enjoy regular weekend excursions with the family and am a keen amateur photographer. We enjoy walking in the 'great outdoors' and visiting places of historical interest; a few of my photo montages from previous visits have been posted on this site and can be found in the archive section.
Well this weekend we took a trip to the incredible World Heritage site of Fountains Abbey and Studley Royal Park in Yorkshire. The sun was shining brightly and offered some great opportunities for photographs, a few of which I share with you below.

Fountains Abbey is one of the largest and and best preserved ruined Cistercian monasteries in England. The earliest parts of the monastery were constructed 1132-1140, making them over 850 years old.

This is certainly a site we will be visiting again in the future. Have you been to Fountains Abbey? I'd love to hear your experiences and your recommendations for further sites to visit.
