Travel stoRy #67 – Whitby in England

Travel stoRy on Tuesday takes us today to Whitby at the Yorkshire coast.

High on the cliffs overlooking Whitby you can visit the ruins of the Whitby Abbey from the 13th century. The history of this place goes back to the 7th century when the first abbey was founded here and two hundred years later Danish Vikings undertook a series of raids on an abbey and destroyed it it. When in the 11th century a Benedictine monastery was built here, the little town was called Whitby “white settlement” from Old Norse.

Travel and Be a part of the stoRy!
