Roche Abbey early morning during October 2008
I was born in Maltby March 1937 at 7 Millicent Square. From my early childhood I have been under the spell of Roche Abbey's history. It's simplistic beauty, the peace and tranquility of this once fine Abbey have been a part of me for over 60 years. I like many of my generation recall the weekends spent in and around Roche Abbey. It has for me enriched my life by the many happy memories I can recall.

Great pic Tommy ... there's something about the remains of churches and abbeys that have a very calming feeling.

Fantastic, Tommy. If I had lived in England, I'm sure I would have felt the same. We visited Rievaulx and Whitby and I was absolutely spellbound. I'm glad there were people throughout the centuries who had enough of a sense of history to not tear them down, even after they went into ruin. The photo is amazing. Thanks for sharing.
I know the abbey very well and this shot encapsulates it, well done Tommy.

This picture captures the calmness and also, a bit of mystery with the mist. It is superb!
