Fan vaulting in Bath Abbey

bath_abbey_chancel_roof_2000c

This is another picture from my brief trip to Bath a week ago. The fan vaulting in this abbey church is spectacular and amongst the best in the country, totally enhanced by the golden Bath stone (an oolitic limestone). The ceiling was originally built under Robert and William Vertue and restored by Sir George Gilbert Scott in the 19th century.
