Pictures from the exhibition: The Cellarium
Another of the prints from my exhibition in the Half Moon Café in Saltaire's Roberts Park, on until the end of this month....
The stunning vaulted roof of the Cellarium at Fountains Abbey (North Yorkshire) survived amazingly intact after Henry VIII's brutal dissolution of the monasteries in the sixteenth century. It was here that the lay brothers of the Abbey ate, slept and socialised. Now it's home to several protected species of bat. Patiently waiting to take a photograph without any people in it (difficult on a summer weekend), I had time to enjoy the serenity of this huge space.
