Whitby

Whitby Abbey, North Yorkshire
May 2019

“Right over the town is the ruin of Whitby Abbey, which was sacked by the Danes, and which is the scene of part of “Marmion,” where the girl was built up in the wall. It is a most noble ruin, of immense size, and full of beautiful and romantic bits. There is a legend that a white lady is seen in one of the windows… This is to my mind the nicest spot in Whitby.”
