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.
Oh yeah my mistake...the ruins in the pic are of the rebuilt abbey....1087 apparently!

Still...1000 years old :eek:
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.
The weather aint that bad, people! It has been 20 deg C (and thats in the north) this weekend, and we're only just going into British summer time (BST)...
Its been hitting 20'C here most of March (I Live in South Lincolnshire)
