Fountains Abbey, Yorkshire.

Our trip to the enormous (and spectacular) Fountains Abbey yesterday (you can thank Henry VIII for destroying it!).

On this day…

On the 12th of July, 1543, King Henry VIII married his sixth and final wife, Catherine Parr, at Hampton Court Palace.

This painting of Parr was mistakenly identified as Jane Grey for generations.
