Fountains Abbey is at the bottom of a valley and all you can see from the top is the top of the Abbey tower.
The walk down is fairly steep but when you come to see was small but really exciting and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Pity though that photos weren't allowed. The Focus group had all previously taken photos, drawings etc of the abbey to use as the source for their work. It was surprising how different people approach the same subject. The exhibition was entitled "Focus on Fountains" and many of the pieces were based on the abbey's arche. I hope to use my photos to do something creative later.
