A cool but fine day made this trip an ideal way to spend Sunday afternoon, amid these magnificent ruins, set in a peaceful, wooded valley, glowing with autumn colour.

This looks a very picturesque place which we have not visited as yet...thank you for posting such lovely photos to whet or appetite. Lucky for you that you live near enough to visit often.

It's good to take advantage of the dry days just now before the days turn colder, wetter....and you chose a lovely sunny day! :)

Whistonlass, As you say, Ripon is not too far from York. Near enough to make 'Fountains' an easy day out, 3 or 4 times in a year.
Like many National Trust sites it is always worth a visit. The restaurant is very good by the way!
Sanbaz, I hope you get the chance to make the trip some day.
