The Embsay & Bolton Abbey Steam Railway (E&BASR) is a heritage railway in North Yorkshire.
The National Trust are lucky to preside over a number of superb properties and points of interest within the county of Yorkshire, and one of the most notable is Fountains Abbey. The largest monastic ruins in the country and dating from the 12th century, the vast remains of the building make for a special place in which to explore the past and conjure thoughts about the lives of the monks who founded the abbey.
