In spirit, as far removed as possible from its original home in the soggy Midlands (near Worcester), the relatively new Stanbrook Abbey teeters on the Southern edge of the North York Moors National Park. I have been meaning to visit the nuns ever since their move four years ago, and today at last I managed it. Sister Petra showed four of us the temporary chapel, and we admired the magnificent view South over the Coxwold-Gilling gap.

Earlier, I had fulfilled another long-term ambition, to visit John Bunting's Memorial Chapel above Oldstead.
