Part of the ruins of Kirkstall Abbey in Leeds. One of the best preserved 12th century Cistercian monasterys in the country. Situated on the banks of the river Aire and surrounded by parkland it is a great place to visit. The museum, cafe and information centre are also worth a look.

    Hello Colin I think I like it in B&W better then colour, it gives it a dramatic and moody feel great work whatever.

  • Thanks very much Malcolm, the mono is my favourite it seemed to bring out the stonework better.
