Bolton Abbey

Bolton Priory, Skipton, BD23 6AL

Bolton Abbey is a beautiful location next to the River Wharfe. The Augustinian Priory church ruins date from the 12th century. The reasonably low levels of light pollution make this a fantastic place for astrophotography. Photo by Lee Jeffs on Unsplash
