Just the kind of place I would love to explore.

A church with a long history, and not all of it good.

Hello Andy. I hadn't realised how cold the day was when I visited Kirkstall so I didn't hang around for long. I plan to return and explore properly when I have put a warm coat on!

Hello Taken for Granted. That's it summed up exactly!

How beautiful it must have been when first finished. Much of the beauty is still there. Thanks for sharing this.

Hello Susan. The Abbey must have been really impressive when new - both in its beauty and as a symbol of power.
