Whitby Abbey

Whitby Abbey

Whitby, North Yorkshire

The abbey dates back to the 7th Century when Oswy, King of Northumbria, sent a Northumbrian princess named Hilda to Whitby to found an abbey.

I've been away for a week without an internet connection. Thanks to everyone who has provided comments or votes during the last week, I will catch up with comments in the next few days.
