photoblog image Gisborough Priory from the Applegarth

Gisborough Priory from the Applegarth

This is another from my archive of old negatives. Taken about 30 years ago in my home town, the remains of the east window of Gisborough Priory can be seen in the distance with the existing church tower visible through the arch of the window. The footpath which goes to the right of the picture is known locally as the Applegarth - but I can't find out how it got this name.

OMG, David. This is going straight to my Likeys!!!
Pilgrim: Thanks Ginnie, that's very kind of you. David.
Love the shot. Looks very spooky though
Pilgrim: Thanks Tracy. There is a local folklore story of a Black Monk who is supposed to walk along this path and around the priory ruins. Can't say I've met him yet. David.

Pilgrim: Thanks Petra, its a lot easier getting the effect you want digitally than it was when I took this image. Thanks for visiting, David.

Great Shot David - looks like something from the original Great Expectations (David Lean?). I wish my negatives were in such good shape - anything over five years ago is badly reticulated! Too many damp rooms. :o(
Pilgrim: Thanks Mike. This area was actually used for a film shoot by the BBC - but I can't remember what it was. I've been lucky so far with my negatives, haven't found any damaged yet and I had left them in a drawer up in the loft for years. Still got lots to scan!! David.
wonderful! i do feel as if i could step into the photo and be inside a dicken's novel. smile
Pilgrim: Thanks Lizzie. This view hasn't changed much in many many years and I still walk that path 3 or 4 times a week. The priory in the distance dates back to about 1119. My very first posting was another view of the same place. David.
Very Atmospheric
