The ruins of Rievaulx Abbey, deep in the North York Moors. The Milky Way arches over the ancient Gothic cathedral.
Set deep in the North York Moors, Rievaulx Abbey was once one of the most powerful monasteries in England. Built around 1132, then torn down some 400 years later on the order of king Henry VIII. The ruins now form an imposing stage from which to see the stars.
