Yarn, Yorkshire and All Manner of Wonderful Things!

Fountains Abbey.

The sun was shining so it was time for a Day Out. And so off to Fountains Abbey. Near Ripon, North Yorkshire.

When you look at my pictures you’ll think that looks familiar- Fountains Abbey after all is a World Heritage site.

After exploring the Abbey and the Mill you stroll off into the grounds of Studley Royal

And see the Georgian Water Garden, currently under restoration with a new yew hedge.

The undergrowth is gradually being cleared away.

Leaving behind the water garden and going up the hill of the Deer Park you glimpse this Victorian gem.

On a Saturday afternoon there is an organ recital, we caught the last twenty minutes and it was just glorious.

  1. Another reason to visit Yorkshire. The list just keep growing!

  2. One of the places I would like to visit one day but it is so far to go from Southampton!

  3. Beatiful place, beautiful pictures!

  4. That ceiling is gorgeous but so are the shots of the green, green countryside (it’s so yellow here in California this time of year). The water garden photo is so pretty with the building in the distance and the also the one of the interior vaulted archways (or whatever they’re called). Thanks for providing this little green getaway. I bet the organ music was lovely.

  5. Picture perfect!!! 🙂
