Abbey Ruins in York

Abbey Ruins in York

York is best known for York Minster Cathedral, but something about the ruins of St Mary's Abbey is more interesting and mysterious to me. Why destroy most of the abbey but leave some of it standing? What did it look like when it was whole?

We visited York for my birthday a few years ago. It was also the first time I met S's family. Nice to think I'm part of the family now!
