Furness Abbey
I'm really quite ashamed to admit it, this gorgeous Abbey is just a 3 minute drive from my house and I haven't visited in around 10 years. Earlier this week me and my mam decided to go for a walk down so I grabbed my camera and off we went! Our local abbey was one of the richest monasteries in England, now standing at over 900 years old the site is maintained by English Heritage. Unfortunately there's had to be some conservation work carried out over the last few years and some of the larger buildings are now covered in scaffolding to help it from sinking into the soft ground.

  2. So gorgeous! I wish there were some pretty ruins like this within walking distance of my house (saying that, they may well be I've just never bothered to explore it!)
