Furness Abbey, Barrow-in-Furness

  • Description

    "The abbey dates back to 1123 and the majority of the current ruins date from the 12th and 13th centuries. By the 15th century, it had become the second richest and most powerful Cistercian Abbeys in England. English Heritage is carrying out emergency conservation work to stop the impressive remains of the ruined Abbey church sinking into the soft ground." Photo by G Laird, 2017.
