"Everywhere peace, everywhere serenity, and a marvellous freedom from the tumult of the world."
St Aelred (1111-1167), the third abbot of Rievaulx Abbey
Rievaulx in Yorkshire has two major heritage sites - Rievaulx Terrace (looked after by the National Trust) and the ruins of Rievaulx Abbey (maintained by English Heritage) - the first Cistercian Abbey in the north of England, founded in 1132.

For more information about the sketches in this blog post visit Views from Rievaulx Terrace posted on my Travels with a sketchbook blog.

  1. Lovely landscapes, as usual but what really drew my eye was that little gem of the boy and his dog!

  2. How utterly lovely these sketches are. There is so much on your blog to delight the eye and the mind, Katherine, that I'm afraid I might never find the time to actually sketch again!
