|[Dracula by Bram Stoker]@TWC D-Link bookDracula
The valley is beautifully green, and it is so steep that when you are on the high land on either side you look right across it, unless you are near enough to see down.
The houses of the old town--the side away from us, are all red-roofed, and seem piled up one over the other anyhow, like the pictures we see of Nuremberg.
Right over the town is the ruin of Whitby Abbey, which was sacked by the Danes, and which is the scene of part of "Marmion," where the girl was built up in the wall.
It is a most noble ruin, of immense size, and full of beautiful and romantic bits.
There is a legend that a white lady is seen in one of the windows.
