Bath Abbey – Weekly Photo Challenge: Masterpiece

One of the most beautiful buildings I’ve been (and been able to take photos of the exterior and interior) to is Bath Abbey.

‘The Abbey as we know it is the work of Sir George Gilbert Scott, who from 1864 to 1874, completely transformed the inside of the Abbey to conform with his vision of Victorian Gothic architecture. His most significant contribution must surely be the replacement of the ancient wooden ceiling over the nave with the spectacular stone fan vaulting we see today.’

Sir George designed a lot of public and residential buildings, most notably the Albert Memorial in Kensington Gardens, and worked on the restoration a LOT of churches, Cathedrals and Abbeys, including Westminster Abbey and St Margaret’s London, among others.

All photos taken December 2011.

Weekly photo challenge.

PS: This is my 100th blog post. Yay! Thanks to all my readers and especially subscribers 🙂
