Hulne Abbey, near Alnwick

A view in ink of the ruins of Hulne Priory (formerly the abbey) near Alnwick in Northumberland. Built in 1242 by William de Vesci, it is probably the first Carmelite building in England. Standing on a spur of land overlooking the River Aln, its ruins are remarkably well preserved. Much of the medieval friary remains, along with its late-medieval fortifications.
