FURNESS ABBEY

FURNESS ABBEY

The ruins of one of the most impressive abbeys in the land - and in its day, one of the richest. Founded by Stephen, later King of England, the remains date mainly from the 12th and 13th centuries. As well as the abbey church and other buildings, there's a fascinating display of rare effigies of knights. Also on display is the 'Furness Crozier' and abbot's ring, excavated from a grave.
