Hello LOZ and steve, thanks for your visits and kind comments. It is indeed a very impressive place. I am not sure of the age of the Abby but the Church of St Mary the Virgin close by dates as far back as 1110, I learned from the internet. Thanks for the LIKE LOZ.

Best wishes to you both, John

Oops didn't see this on my last comment John. Great capture of this more unusual aspect of the Abbey. Well done, Herb

A wonderful foreground for the Abbey. The softness of the grasses makes a good contrast with the hardness of the stone. It's a scene just waiting for Dracula and I more than like!

Best wishes, Lesley
