Today, we decided to head out to Valley Crucis Abbey. Although we’ve been before, I thought we would have a new perspective since our visit to Tintern Abbey a few weeks ago.
And I was right.
The Valle Crucis Abbey wasn’t as large as Tintern, which allowed me to look at the structure. Instead of looking at the grand scale, I focused on the details of the abbey and I am happy to share some of the pics with you!
I thought this iron work was so interesting. It is on the main door of the abbey, what a “peep hole” that is.
The intricate detail of the hinge. (Did I mention this was built in the 13th century?)
The latch on the main door. I love the detail work here, and the contrast against the rust.
Once I started looking for details, I found different textures, colors and patterns of moss. Which (when looking for it) added interesting depth to the abbey.
I had to include this image, with the sunlight streaming through these gorgeous windows. Stunning.
It was fun looking for the small details of the Valle Crucis Abbey, rather than looking at the grand scale of the building. Looking for the detail had me appreciated the age of the building, andhow it has stood for so much time.
