Botlon Abbey, England

I visited Bolton Abbey on a typically foggy English morning. The Abbey was originally built by the Augustinians in the 12th Century. As you can see, much of the structure is in ruin. The other side of the building is still in tact, and it’s maintained as a functioning Church.

The grounds around the Abbey are large enough to contain miles of hiking trails, and the woods will open up (in season) for small and exclusive hunting parties. All of this land is the property of the Duke of Devonshire. That’s one thing I could not quite get over. That, some of the places we went to were the property of Royalty, yet most of the grounds were open to the public.
