Artist's Description

Just delving back a few years to a picture from Shap Abbey in Westmorland (now Cumbria) and on the eastern borders of the Lake District. More details of this wonderful abbey will follow if and when I get round to putting up some pictures!
However, as is so often the case with our treasured abbeys, the location of Shap Abbey is such a potent part of the whole experience. As you stroll towards the west tower you pass by the River Lowther with the blur of a dipper coming to rest on a stone to “dip” up and down before plunging into the rushing waters, whilst above, on the bank, trees, gnarled with age and battered by the harsh climate cling on to life for hundreds of years watching patiently as the abbey slowly returns to Nature’s grasp.
Thanks for looking,
Richard
