Fountains Abbey lies in ruins…the result on one stubborn man’s obsession.
But for my 4yr old grandson it is brilliant! He loves Fountains Abbey and all it’s ruins. He loves climbing the ruined walls and exploring the hidden rooms and running and running and running around it’s expansive grounds. He just loves it!
There are a number of ruined abbeys (and castles) near us – Rievaulx, Kirkstall, Bolton, Jervaulx Abbeys – in fact there are literally dozens of ruins within half an hours drive of us – but Mackenzie loves Fountains best. I don’t know why, he just does.
It is great for use too as it is a fantastic way to keep him and his 2yr old brother amused and worn out.
And theres nothing much better than 2 worn out little boys!
