Throwback to 2015 and great trip to Whitby 🙂

Whitby is a seaside town in Yorkshire, northern England, split by the River Esk. On the East Cliff, overlooking the North Sea, the ruined Gothic Whitby Abbey was Bram Stoker’s inspiration for “Dracula”. Nearby is the Church of St. Mary, reached by 199 steps.

Akershus Castle is the last place we managed to visit in Oslo in February 🙂

It is a medieval castle from around 1300AD. It has been remodelled to a renaissaence castle in the first half of the 17th century. Castle’s splendid halls are used by the Goverment for State events, whereas chapel and the Royal Mausoleum are open to the public, and of course we have been there too XD.

Audley End House and area

Saffron Walden is a small town located in Essex. Actually it is in boarder of three counties: Suffolk, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire. It is well known for market and medieval buildings. This wealthy area just 40mins away from London is rich in colorful historic buildings and victorian gardens.

Audley End House is the largest 17th century country house just outside Saffron Walden. In summer, there are shows of horse driving and riding in traditional victorian style 🙂  Audley End House – English Heritage.

In winter, you can always enjoy my winter landscapes of this place.

Littlebury, on the other hand is a small village between these two places. It has no shop, but one pub – at least xd And the buildings are small and cute 🙂

Post dedicated to Crimson April for lovely comment and appreciation 😉

Bolton Abbey / March 2014

Bolton Abbey is an estate in Wharfdale in North Yorkshire. It takes its name from the ruins of Augustinian monastery from 12th century.

There are many foopaths and it is up to you if you want to walk 10 miles or just 1 mile to go around the monastery.

We went a few miles along the river, via forests and meadows.

Lovely place for day out.
