Photographer's Note

after the norman conquest many new abbeys were built including the one at whitby . In 1110 a stone church was built for the use of abbey workers but over the years it was altered and enlarged.
The dissolution of the monasteries started in 1536 by henry the viii resulting in the destruction of the abbey in 1539 st marys church however remained and is still used for sunday services and many weddings etc.
