Dracula's Graveyard Extra

(viewed 1806 times)
Bookmark and Share
The sea-air gnaws away at the stonework in an oddly organic, crinkly way; some of the gravestones are almost untouched, others (like in the bottom pic) have got so thin they've snapped in two.

Quite an eerie place, it's easy to see how Bram might've been a little inspired.

A random group of black sheep roamed the overgrown cemetery.

Bother! You've just usurped me on the highlights! Mind you, that took a lot longer than I expected...

Ah 'tis a good picture though. These gravestones with different wear... that first one looks as though it's a different stone to the others, hmmm.

I don't like modern grave markers, simply because they're designed not to wear away.

The top one looks like it is made of metal

It does have a suspicion of rust about it, yes.

Sorry, Helen! You're right, though - older gravestones are more fun.

Steve says:

it looks like an old ship should be buried there.... gotta love the look of rust

Helen says:

They ought to just stop making the new ones from marble and go back to sand and limestone. I guess people want permanence.

Maybe there's iron ore in that first stone? [Shrug]. I've seen a rusty sort of lichen on the stone walls around here.

You're not really sorry! And you shouldn't be.

I adore whitby, it's one of the few places I can actually imagine living, outside of the city, every time I go, I'm filled with a desire to find smugglers caves and passageways...the history of the place is fascinating, not to mention the dracular link.

I'm looking forward to finishing work so I can check out these things, and if there are any decent photographs left to take... Neel sets the bar rather high.

Thanks, crickson: there's plenty more a-waiting.

Joe, you'll probably quite like the theatre-thing that we went to see there - Mulgrave. It's set in a wood/estate just outside Whitby, up the coast. Quite magical, mixing the history of the place with bits of weird-o fiction. A very unique experience.
