Whitby Abbey was much later than that... the original abbey was built 650AD, but the ruins you've pictured are only about 7/800 years old.

Surprisingly, I've seen most of those places in the pics with the exception of a few. The UK will be more appealing if it had better weather, hehe. I love the Lake District and the Highlands, lovely places.
