Taken during our very first holiday in the North Yorkshire Moors Area in June, 1976, how do I know, well Maureen was 7 months pregnant with our son at that time. This was taken on monochrome film and processed in my own darkroom, the scan being from a print. I do remember it wasn’t the best of days weather wise, hence it is a bit ‘flat’. Rievaulx Abbey is a former Cistercian abbey in Rievaulx, near Helmsley, North Yorkshire. Headed by the Abbot of Rievaulx, it was one of the wealthiest abbeys in England until it was dissolved by Henry VIII in 1538. Its ruins are a tourist attraction, owned and maintained by English Heritage, and I believe our dear friend Philine made a visit here last year.
