Whitby, England

Images from Whitby, North Yorkshire, England.

Whitby Abbey: Situated high on the cliff east of Whitby town centre, the ruins of Whitby Abbey are the town's iconic emblem. Although the first Abbey recorded here was in 657 AD, which originally contained the shrine of St Hilda, the founder of the Abbey and Northumbrian royal who died in 680 AD, the ruins you see today date from around 1220 AD. Whitby Abbey is particularly renowned for its links with the first of the Saxon poets - Caedmon who lived and worked here.
