After I have left you waiting for the photos of the actual Fountains Abbey, we are finally there with this post! To some, this may just appear like a heap of old stones. To me, it is one of the most beautiful places on this planet, and fully deserves to be one of UNESCO's World Heritage sites, as Kay has mentioned in her comment to my previous post.
Without further ado, let's speak the rest of this post for itself - this is Fountains Abbey, as it was last Thursday:
There aren't any pictures of Studley Royal Water Gardens this time; I took some, but they did not turn out as good as I was hoping. The last picture of this post shows the end of the water gardens, the "big" lake which also marks the end of the part of the estate you can only access after you have paid admission.
We are on our way back already; my next post will show more of that.
Can you guess which is my favourite picture of this lot?
