Ancient and modern in North Yorkshire

The greyness of the sky, corresponding
with the greyness of the stone, only seems to accentuate the contrast between the presence and absence of mass here in
the ruined east end of Bolton Priory, in North Yorkshire. Beyond the monumental forms of the architecture, there is also the draw of observing the way contemporary life infiltrates such places — including
the bride, accompanied by her groom
and veil-carrier.
