Furness Abbey - Nave and Transepts

  • Description

    "Little remains of the nave of the great abbey church at Furness, the grassed area seen here being the floor with the stumps of pillars to the left and low wall to the right being the only remaining masonry. Ahead however are the much more substantial remains of the Transepts with the North to the left and South to the right of the central arch marking the Crossing, with the Presbytery and eastern end of the church (originally containing the High altar) leading on from this. Due to the perilous state of this section of the ruin, which is shored up with huge steel reinforcements, the public is not allowed access to it at present, though most of the rest of the abbey complex can be freely explored. See shared description below for information on the abbey with relevant links." Photo by Rob Farrow, 2013.
