A heart of stone

Today's heart is generously sponsored by Shap Abbey.♥ 



We chanced upon this relic from the Premonstratensian order dating from the 15th century  I suppose if we had come along the main road we would have seen signs down to it, but we had been walking over the moors and then dropped into a sharp hidden valley.To see this Abbey in the middle of 'nowhere' was a delight!
We wandered around its beautifully maintained rocks and were suitably impressed by the magnificent of the tower and the stonework.

These rather large billowing pillow type lumps were bases for polished marble shafts that supported decorated arches.
