Fountain Abbey Walk, Near Ripon

Fountain Abbey is a National Trust property, North Yorkshire. A tramper is available for hire from the estate office.

The path from the main entrance to the abbey is quite sleep and not ideal for manual wheelchairs, but there is specific disabled access via the West Gate car park which has designated blue badge parking.


The ruins themselves are accessed by a grassy area, with ramps in places, some being quite steep. Particularly the ramp to the surprise view. But once again the WHILL electronic wheelchair proved up to the task and the views were rewarding!


We have plotted a route for you to follow, but better still... enjoy explore the grounds and ruins for yourself. There is so much to see.
