A haunting landscape scene, depicting the old ruins of St. Hilda’s Abbey at Whitby, North Yorkshire, on England’s east coast.

Lore has it that this was the final resting place of Dracula, until the cliffs eroded, carrying his coffin off in to the sea below.

Imagine you are stood there, actually viewing the Abbey as it is in the painting. The cliffs are literally a few feet behind you! Quite a scary place (esp. at night) for that reason alone!

If you ever get a chance to visit this amazing place, I highly recommend it! Walk the 199 steep steps up the hill, to where the Ruins of this once beautiful Abbey resides.

Canvas size 76×51×3.8cm (30×20×1.5″), on chunky boxed frame, staple free sides and fully painted edges, make this piece ready to hang.

SOLD – However if you like this piece and would like something similar, please contact me at www.mason-contemporary-arts.co.uk with your requirements.

    A haunting image Nat, no pun intended. I read Dracula when I was at school, I remember Whitby was where Dracula landed in England. The crew gone, captain lashed to the wheel… I can understand why Bram Stoker found the location inspiring with ruins like this.
