Lovely images, Misfit. There's a gorgeous magazine called "This England" which also has a continuous slideshow on its homepage- you might enjoy that as well.

I've found just as many wonderful photographs on Flickr just by doing a simple search.

LOL how true :p Most of England doesn't look like this, I hope y'all realise. :eek:

Nah, we've got plenty of urban sprawl, although we do still have some large chunks of real mountain wilderness left - old Mr. Sasquatch needs somewhere to live in :)

Rain? Who told you it rained here? ;)

The site is very good though and I've used it quite often for research of one kind or another.

Have you seen this one:

I thought this little bit of info about Selby Abbey might be of interest. It's a lovely abbey.
