Artist's Description

My graphite pencil drawing of the ruins of Whitby Abbey (founded in the 7th Century) in Yorkshire, England,

Set high on a North Yorkshire clifftop, its remains overlook a picturesque town and harbour with associations ranging from Victorian jewellery and whaling to Count Dracula. The abbey is today a gaunt and moving ruin and those who choose to approach it up the 199 steps from Whitby town also know the meaning of dedication.

St Hilda brought monks and nuns, including the poet Caedmon, to found a religious house on the coastal headland in 657. Because of her reputation, the Synod of 664 was held there and the two branches of early English Christianity, the Celtic and Roman churches, buried many differences in practice and doctrine.
