Pretty indeed but whether it is Tintern Abbey I'm not sure Let AnneMarie answer Edi first before we start guessing more...

When you say "england... now..." would that make it near the welsh or scottish borders?

This is proving to be rather tricky!

AT least two of the three kings buried there were Scots.

Wales, FYI, is at the other side of the Island entirely.

But I should have got it a lot sooner - the NAME of your original JPEG includes the phrase "TynemouthPriory", which is really a bit of a giveaway...

Well, at least I figured out which it was before spotting the Very Big Clue! Still, that was a tough one. I was fairly sure it'd be in Northumbria based on the earlier clues, but a whole county's a much harder place to search than just its coastline.

Mind you, I had a good time working my way through the National Trust/English Heritage webpages, trying to figure it out.

I honestly was waiting for someone to notice the file name! Good job, Kath! I deliberately made sure the second picture had the Coast Guard station in it!

How fantastic to be able to tour the country and find a ruined castle around a corner!. There's plenty of different views in New Zealand, all natural ones as we are so small with such a variety of scenery
