Graves at Lanercost Priory

There’s something photographically delectable about ancient headstones, the overgrowth, the mosses and lichens, the beautiful stone carvings. Lanercost had some wonderful treats for my camera.

  1. Nice set! I’m desperate to discover the font used for Jeffrey Bull (Man of Leeds) inscription. Will get back back if I find it.

  2. Nice shots. I do love exploring old graveyards with my camera. Love the texture of the moss stuff in that final shot.
