Whitby Abbey Part One

I love ruins. I don't know why I am more attracted by ruins than fully restored structure... 

Taken by Infrared camera

The ruined Whitby Abbey belonged to Benedictine monastery that was a center of prayer and study for over four centuries. It is located on the East Cliff above Whitby in North Yorkshire, England.




The first monastery was founded in 657 AD by the Anglo-Saxon era King of Northumbria. In the 7th and 8th centuries it was the site of a thriving Anglian town and a famous religious community.
