To close this look at Fountains Abbey a picture of Fountains Hall just off to one side of the site. The hall has seen many uses over the years – stately home, courthouse, an estate employees’ lodging and a farmer’s house. Sir Stephen Proctor built this elegant mansion as his country home in the early 17th century. He reused sandstone blocks and a stone staircase from the abbey, but had fresh limestone cut for the windows and main façade.
