This is the Choristers House. Standing proud within an ancient 400 acre deer park, this magnificent Burges-designed property promises panoramic views across the World Heritage Site of Fountains Abbey and Studley Royal. Built in 1873, its name stems from the fact that it was originally a music school. Today it offers a spacious and unspoiled setting for up to 10 people to stay. The interior captures the Burges style, whilst also reflecting the historic setting of Studley Royal park: a continual home to herds of deer for the past 500 years.
It is the perfect base for anyone looking to explore the spectacular surroundings of Fountains Abbey or slightly further-a-field destinations like York, The Dales and North Yorkshire Moors. There is a small enclosed lawn area to the front of the house, beyond that is the deer park, home to over 400 red, fallow and sika deer.
An abandoned building on the outskirts of Ripon, Wisconsin. This small building located at the edge of a corn field exhibits unusual architecture for such a small building in a rural area. What was it? Why is it abandoned?
A quite remarkable structure given its age.
Nidderdale, North Yorkshire
Founded in 1132, the Abbey operated for over 400 years, until 1539, when Henry VIII ordered the Dissolution of the Monasteries.
