Whitby and Whitby Abbey, North Yorkshire, UK

Part 35 of a photographic tour of Dracula's Whitby. Stoker took his inspiration from a Whitby legend; the Barguest, a spectral hound. Like the Norfolk Black Shuck hound, the tales of these fearsome hounds owe their origins to the Viking invasions of the eastern coastal towns, as they would bring terrifying large dogs with them during the attacks. #vampire #dracula #goth #whitby #bramstoker #mina #stoker

Whitby, North Yorkshire, a gothic, gritty, fantasy of a town. (my photos)

Standing proudly on a headland with breathtaking views over the seaside town of Whitby, it's easy to see how the magnificent Whitby Abbey inspired Bram Stoker's gothic novel 'Dracula'. Look closely enough at the romantic ruins and you'll discover remnants of intricate carvings from the 13th century. http://eht.to/91
