Photographer's Note

View of Whitby and beyond from behind the Church of Saint Mary. We were too late to visit the ruins of Whitby Abbey, of which I have seen many photos. This photo was taken from the hill near Whitby Abbey. The river Esk is out of view below the church. My lens was not wide enough to fit in the church and the sea to the right. I really needed to stitch a panoramic here.

The Church of Saint Mary is an Anglican parish church serving the town of Whitby in North Yorkshire England. It was founded around AD 1110, although its interior dates chiefly from the late 1700s. The church was designated a Grade I listed building on 23 February 1954. It is situated on the town's east cliff, overlooking the mouth of the River Esk overlooking the town, close to the ruins of Whitby Abbey. A flight of 199 steps lead up the hill to the church from the streets below. The church graveyard was used as a setting in Bram Stoker's novel, Dracula.
