  1. I perused this ‘silently’, Sue. Part of a Norman castle, or perhaps a monastery?
    Look as if it served as a place to draw water from, or to use as a toilet.
    Lots of thoughts, from one photo.
    Best wishes, Pete.

      It was a Cistercian abbey, Pete – Jervaulx, in North Yorkshire. A most enchanting place, and I shall be doing another ‘Pleasure of Ruins’ featuring it. I need to look back at my information to see which part of the abbey this was… There were a lot of these arches down each wall, and I think they would have held statues.

  2. A splendid piece of ruin. Am looking forward to the further feature. It’s also reminded me that it’s time to have another wander round Wenlock’s best ruin.

  3. A lovely lush ruin this one, beautifully centred, and maybe even scented, depending on the identity of the flowers and leaves.

      Don’t recall any scents!

      Another one you will like when you get to it is my Pleasure of Ruins, at Rievaulx (don’t think you have seen it yet)

      • Check again. Not only did I see, I relished and commented.

        Ooops, sorry…blame it on the recent heat and the fact I have been a little ‘under the weather’, still trying to shake off an infection, and hoping I’ll be top notch for Sweden! Of course you commented, saying the photos were not like my usual….well, that was how they used to be 5 plus years ago. Representative and unpeopled…

      • However, I had to go back and check, to make sure! Sorry you’ve been under the weather. Not a good place to be.

      • Sue

        My life these days has a considerable number of ‘under the weather days’, it just comes with the territory….even the nice lady GP said to me the other day that MS is ‘rubbish’ …so one just has to make the most of the good times. I think one’s mindset adapts to the new parameters, but there are times when I do get frustrated

    • 🙂 Only you could imagine scents around ruin, pleasant ones.

  4. Great photo Sue, I don’t know of many really interesting ruins. I did take a photo today with you in mind though, I’m sorry to hear that your MS has been so grim lately, hugs, G.

  5. Nothing is better than an old ruin covered by some lovely moss! Great shot for this challenge!

  6. I like this type of “gothic” arch, the place promises a fun adventure.

  7. A reverent silence, Sue. 🙂 🙂

  8. I love the feel of this photo it juste draws me in.
