Furness Abbey - Archway to Chapter House

  • Description

    "According to the EH plan, both the Chapter House and the wall in which this arch is set date from the "early to mid C13th" - it is rather surprising that this arch (the northernmost-but-one of five along this wall, see http://www.geograph.org.uk/photo/3708157) is of the characteristic Romanesque semicircular style, which would suggest a much earlier date contemporary with the earliest parts of the abbey (1127-1170). The Chapter House windows which can be seen on the far wall, have the pointed arch one would expect from this later period." Photo by Rob Farrow, 2013.
