Whitby Abbey, Shot from the road, Whitby, Yorkshire, England - The abbey was founded in 657 AD as a Christian monastery that later became a Benedictine abbey. The second monastery lasted until it was destroyed by Henry VIII in 1540 during the Dissolution of the Monasteries. In which monastic buildings were confiscated and sold off to families who sympathised with the break from Rome. By 1540 monasteries were being dismantled at a rate of fifty a month. Though the abbey was stripped and fell into ruin, it remained a prominent landmark and helped inspire Bram Stoker's 1897 novel Dracula. Dracula came ashore as a creature resembling a large dog and climbed the 199 steps which lead to the abbey.
