Bram Stoker’s Whitby: an illustrated guide (1)

“The houses of the old town… are all red-roofed, and seem piled up one over the other anyhow, like the pictures we see of Nuremburg. Right over the town is the ruin of Whitby Abbey… It is a most noble ruin, of immense size, and full of beautiful and romantic bits; there is a legend that a white lady is seen in one of the windows. Between it and the town there is another church, the parish one, round which is a big graveyard, all full of tombstones.”
