Rievaulx Abbey

We are in Dorridge for the night. On the way here we stopped at Rievaulx Abbey. Just as we were leaving a Korean couple arrived to take some wedding photos at the Abbey. 

Rievaulx was one of the first Cistercian abbeys to be founded in England in around 1130, and after the dissolution, became the centre of commercial activity for many years. The abbey forge was used to set up an ironworks on the site.

After a cloudy cool start to the day we got sunshine while we were visiting the Abbey.

I can finally ditch my winter woollies now!
