Hertford College Chapel

oxfordhertfordAh, Oxford and its colleges. Who hasn’t heard of it?I stayed one day here and tried to visit some of the old chapels and dining halls. Asking kindly is worth at the entrances of the colleges, so I wanted to thank all the porters who are doing great jobs and especially those who let me in to see these fine places of education and art.

Furness Abbey

furness2 [1600x1200]Furness Abbey was founded as early as in 1124 but was left to ruins after 1537. Although not much is left of this once impressive abbey I liked the scenery with the old canal looking towards the forest and the old abbey.

I’ve got a good contrast music here, how about some ambient progressive rock?
