Fountains Abbey Cellarium Arches Spiders

The famous arches of Fountains Abbey Cellarium provide a wonderful, spider-like focal point to a room so full of detail and light. The arched windows light the vaulted ceiling, casting a lattice work of shadow. The architecture in this room is simply incredible. Fountains Abbey is near to Ripon, in Yorkshire. Jointly owned and managed by the National Trustand English Heritage<, this site is easily a full day to explore. With the ruins of the abbey, a working water mill, the old manor house, Studley Church, the river side walk, deer park, the photographic options are endless.
