Whitby Church and Abbey by Edward Denyer
Clear

St. Mary’s Church, Whitby and Abbey, North Yorkshire. Taken on full zoom across the valley and harbour.

St. Mary’s Church: Tthe parish church of the North Yorkshire fishing town of Whitby, combines a fortress-like exterior fit for the stormy North Sea weather with a warm, charming interior that is a jumble of styles and furnishings. Located right next to the ruins of Whitby Abbey,
Whitby Abbey: Whitby Abbey is a ruined Benedictine abbey overlooking the North Sea on the East Cliff above Whitby in North Yorkshire, England. It was disestablished during the Dissolution of the Monasteries under the auspices of Henry VIII. It is a Grade I Listed building in the care of English Heritage.

    Great shot Ted. I’m drawn to this sort of thing. I’m sure I have ancestry related to this church – I ‘m a keen, but amateur genealogist. I’ll look into it.
    Regards, Margaret
