Rievaulx Abbey: North Transept

North Transept

North transept of the abbey church. A transition of styles can be seen by comparing the two side walls: the older part, built around 1145, is on the left (west); the reconstruction of the presbytery in the 1220s is reflected on the right (east). Rievaulx Abbey, founded 1132. North Yorkshire, England.
