Having waited for Dawn on Whitby Pier I headed home and managed to catch the rising sun illuminating Whitby abbey. There has been an abbey on this site since 657 AD but the ruins you see today are the Benedictine Abbey built in about 1220. The building lasted until 1540 when it was partially destroyed on the orders of Henry VIII and it has crumbled away since with shelling from German Battecruisers during the First World War not helping! It is remarkable that so much still stands today.

I had to climb over the wall to get this one since English Heritage don’t open up at sunrise but don’t tell anyone!
