Built 1132. Sacked by Henry. Still standing. Splendid

Fountains Abbey in North Yorkshire was founded in 1132 and sacked by Henry the Eighth. It is a world heritage site and so very splendid to visit.

Probably too many picci's but hell I took 100's!

3. Jeez, you'd think they'd have fixed it up by now.
