  4. Hi Patsy~ your pictures are fabulous. The tiles caught my eye so I looked up more info on Byland Abbey. Here's a tidbit I found funny, Wimund (bishop) - English bishop, later turned pirate, was held here after his capture in the 12th century. BISHOP LATER TURNED PIRATE :o

    1. What a great titbit, Robin! I didn't know about the piracy, but after learning some of the antics of other bishops, I can easily believe it's true. I'm sure there were good ones, but there were plenty of rotters and scoundrels too.
