Bolton Abbey

 Preparing the altar for Mass

 Introibo ad altare Dei

The remains of the Abbey from across the River Wharfe

I thought that I would be suffering from a chill today after spending yesterday with a pilgrim group at Bolton Abbey.  The rain was never quite enough to make us abandon anything and certainly not enough to prevent the children enjoying some organised games between Mass in the place where the Abbey altar would once have stood, lunch in the parish rooms and Rosary in the church.  The Vicar of the parish, Canon Moffat made us very welcome on a day when he was conducting two weddings!

Opposite the church is the holiday "cottage" of the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire - called the Bungalow!
