After Hours

After Hours. After climbing the 199 steps and wasting time as the light faded trying to get into a closed Abbey, I climbed over the wall to get this shot.

    People have been climbing over monastery walls for centuries.

      True, the Vikings were the first to destroy a monastic building on this site, I don't think my photography did as much damage as they did?

        Ah now, Howard - if you were a Good Catholic Boy, you would know what "going over the wall" means … as for Vikings attacking monasteries we have form there too ,,, that was the subject of one of my son's first ever songs : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yE52YVsJMcE

    So having climbed the stairs, jumped the wall, taken the photo, did you get to kill the dragon in the basement?
    • Howard

      No, the basement was closed until next Dragon killing season, £15 entry fee but discounted for Christians.

        Most of the historic places like this are only open from about 9 or 9:30 am to 5 or maybe 6 pm. I always check this during my planning process :) pity most are closed for the best light of the day.

            Sure, but I always travel in May so Sunrise is about 5 am and sunset at about 9 pm ...
