okay, I'll stop in a minute ...

but this is cool. Here are photos of priory ruins at Lindisfarne, the Holy Island off the North Sea. This chapel was built by Benedictine monks from the monastery at Durham Cathedral. They were French, and had built the smaller priory chapel in the same style as Durham.

Henry VIII shut down the monastery in the 1530s and it fell to ruin.
