The abbey lies in the beautiful Yorkshire Dales. Full of pregnant memories, associations and a sense of history, the place has so much to offer. Whether its photographs you are after, or a quiet and peaceful moment, it has it all and more besides.
I decided that mono suited the subject better, less distracting than colour and enables one to focus on the lines and tones of the image.
Founded in 1156, Jervaulx Abbey was once a great Cistercian monastery.
Plundered and pillaged during the Dissolution of the Monasteries in the 16th century, the Abbey now stands as an enchanting, charming and atmospheric ruin, allowed to flourish by its private owners with wild flowers and plants freely exploring its many nooks and crannies.
