Staring at the past, wondering about the future

Furness Abbey Canaveral prepares for takeoff

There is some extensive conservation work going on at Furness Abbey. Happily most of the abbey isn’t hiding behind scaffolding, so we were able to explore.

Nave and West Tower Cloister (2) Furness Abbey Buttery and Chapel

Looking at the remains of the nave, I found it difficult to imagine what it looked like when it was still a working abbey. Then I found myself wondering how long it will be before I can stand in the same place, wearing some hi-tech glasses, looking at the ruins, with computer generated images filling in the gaps.

Anyway, I’ve lots of other nice pictures to show you, but we’re currently in the Land of Limited Internet, so the rest will have to wait until I’ve managed to upload them.
