Artist's Description

(Please view larger)
The Cistercian Order originally forbade the building of towers but by the beginning of the 16th century, this rule appears to have been relaxed enough for Abbot Huby to order the construction of the great tower at Fountains Abbey in North Yorkshire. Marmaduke Huby was abbot at Fountains from 1495 to 1526 and the tower he constructed still bears his name.
As the extensive monastic complex is in the valley of the River Skell, it is completely hidden from view and as you approach the valley, only the top of Huby’s tower gives a clue to the hidden glory.
