My story with Dave, the kids, Cooper, VW's & rugby

Fountains Abbey & Studley Royal, Ripon

We are very fortunate in Ripon to have a National Trust World Heritage site on our doorstep, and thanks to our new shiny National Trust membership cards we can get in free to this site and any other National Trust site in the UK. Fountains Abbey is steeped in history and was founded in 1132 with the landscaping of Studley Royal Water Gardens beginning in the 1720’s. I took the kids on Sunday for a good long walk (about 3 miles) and took some snaps while I was out.
