Last weekend I got invited along to visit one of the many beautiful English heritage sites in Helmsley, North Yorkshire. Having never heard of this particular abbey before I was quite excited to see what it had to offer, I hadn’t even seen any photos of it on the Internet until now.
When I first got there I was amazed at the size of the place and how much of the main abbey is still left standing quite proudly. I was still getting used to shooting with my D800 but quickly learning as I went along. It didn’t help that it kept raining and hail stoning sporadically, typical English weather for April time though. Nonetheless I still managed to capture a few good images worth keeping and sharing.
Below is a little snippet from the website about the abbey to give you an idea about it’s history.
If peace and tranquillity is what you seek from a family day out in Yorkshire, then Rievaulx Abbey is the perfect choice. Set in a remote valley in the North York Moors National Park, Rievaulx is one of the most complete, and atmospheric, of England’s abbey ruins. It’s no wonder it’s one of the most popular visitor attractions in the North.
