On Friday 30th October, I took the long trip from work to Whitby, for the Illumination of the Abbey. I visited last year, it was bitterly cold and bit miserable, I spent longer in the town. This year I decided to spend as long as possible at the Abbey it’s self, especially with the reasonable weather, only a slight breeze hampered the slow shutter work. The trip was much more worthwhile this year. The £9 price tag for entry was a bit step, but at least you could walk round the far side of the Abbey Pond this year.
