Description"The red sandstone remains of the East Range of Furness Abbey leading to the Transepts of the church in the distance. There is something a little strange about the dating of this wall according to the EH plan, according to which the Transepts date from the earliest period (1127-1170) and have Romanesque features and the range nearest the camera (to the right) date from the early C13th and have pointed Gothic arches. Both of these datings are not problematic, but the middle section which joins them, is dated somewhat later as "early/mid C13th" - however, the five arches seen in a row all have the semi-circular topped arches of the Romanesque period - and therefore are far more likely to date from the earliest period of the abbey's construction along with the Transepts. For a close-up of one of these "problematic" arches see http://www.geograph.org.uk/photo/3708122" Photo by Rob Farrow, 2013.
