Silent Sunday…..back to 657ad

Yorks-2

Whitby Abbey, Yorkshire

Standing high on the cliffs above the town of Whitby on the Yorkshire coast are the magnificent ruins of Whitby Abbey.  Originally a Christian Monastery dating back to 657ad., it later became a Benedictine Abbey one of many that were founded across Yorkshire.

Today it is a ruin and a fraction of its original size….but none the less it is an impressive dramatic statement of its one time religious power.  Well worth a visit.
